Benefits of A Cool Roof rated Roofing MATERIAL
The term cool roof refers to a roofing product with high solar reflectance and thermal emittance properties. Solar reflectance refers to a roofing material’s ability to reflect the sun’s solar energy back into the atmosphere. Thermal emittance provides a means of quantifying how much of the absorbed heat is rejected for a given material.
The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) was created in 1998 to develop accurate and credible methods for evaluating and labeling energy benefits associated with roofing products. It is the sole entity the California Energy Commission recognizes for certifying the solar reflectance and thermal emittance values of roofing products. If a product is approved by the CRRC, it is recognized as Title 24 compliant in the state of California. Only products listed within the CRRC’s Rated Products Directory may be used to meet cool roof requirements.
CeDUR now offers Golden Cedar, a Title 24 compliant Cool Roof Rated product. Golden Cedar features the same product composition as our other product colors (Live Oak, Shiloh and Walden), passes the same high performance testing standards, but also offers a variety of energy benefits for your home. Golden Cedar has been Approved by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and is Title 24 compliant by the California Energy Commission.
