We've done it again. DaVinci Roofscapes has launched four new EcoBlend options approved by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) to reflect sunlight and heat away from a home or commercial structure. The new color blends all meet Title 24 requirements for California. (See What is EcoBlend?)
Newly-introduced color blends for EcoBlend polymer shake and slate roofs include: Tahoe-EcoBlend, Mountain-EcoBlend, Brownstone-EcoBlend, and Slate Gray-EcoBlend.
"California's newly-adopted 2016 Building Energy Standards (Title 24, Part 6) will require use of more energy-efficient roofing materials starting in 2017," says Ray Rosewall, CEO and president of DaVinci Roofscapes. "We've developed these new roofing color blends to meet, and in some cases exceed, these strict requirements.
"In recent years when wildfires and severe weather conditions have increased on the West Coast we've seen enhanced demand for our DaVinci fire- and impact-resistant synthetic shake and slate roofing products. The newly-introduced EcoBlend color family options allow homeowners and commercial property owners to use our durable roofing tiles while complying with the new Title 24 requirements."
EcoBlend color blends previously accessible from DaVinci Roofscapes and still available include: Weathered Gray-EcoBlend and Castle Gray-EcoBlend.
"While Title 24 is unique to California, structures in all areas of the country can benefit from incorporating EcoBlend roof tiles," says Rosewall. "Because these tiles reflect heat and sunlight away from a structure, they help reduce the cooling load, and as a result, increase energy efficiency of a building."
