CertainTeed has strengthened its highly reflective, low-slope CoolStar roofing products with an enhanced ceramic granule surface. The granulated, uncoated finish is designed to be a cost-effective way to lower commercial building energy consumption and increase occupant comfort. It handles like a standard roofing product without special installation requirements, is more aesthetically pleasing, and yet maintains a high solar reflectivity, reducing roof temperatures as much as 20 percent.

CoolStar products meet ENERGY STAR and California Title 24 requirements. CoolStar also qualifies for LEED points and meets NAHB National Green Building Standards.

CoolStar is designed to work with a wide range of roof systems, including built-up roofing, SBS, APP and self-adhering modified bitumen. It is extremely flexible and durable, because of the layering of high-quality reinforcements, heavy asphalt coating and highly reflective ceramic granules. This toughness combats the negative effects of natural expansion and contraction caused by heating, cooling, light and moisture. In addition, the brilliant white CoolStar surface is factory applied for hassle-free, one-step installation, which helps reduce labor costs.

Custom Metal Components Inc. has created an innovative product—EZ Vent-N-Closure—designed to totally eliminate foam closure failure while ventilating the ridge at the same time. EZ Vent-N-Closure is a patented design that consists of a low-profile, continuous vent that is completely concealed by the metal ridge cap that goes on every metal roof. Its installation goes over the end of the metal sheet, thereby eliminating any chance for the foam closure to fall out or deteriorate from continued exposure to the elements, helping ventilate the roof more efficiently. EZ Vent-N-Closure saves time and money, as well as avoids the problems associated with foam rubber closures breaking down and falling out over time.

Providing the rustic look of weathered shake shingle, the lightweight Canyon Shake Shingle stone-coated metal roofing system from Gerard Roofing installs 30 percent faster than conventional batten systems.

The elimination of bending and complex cuts at the hip, rake and valley also reduces labor time. Compared with direct-to-deck roofing profiles, Gerard’s Canyon Shake Shingle offers roofing contractors straighter and more even hips, rakes and valleys.

In addition to expediting installation, Gerard Canyon Shake Shingle also offers multiple trim options, helps prevent moisture penetration, reduces energy costs and prevents debris from clogging drain channels. The Canyon Shake Shingle’s new rake trim helps alleviate mold problems by preventing moisture from penetrating the roof deck.

An innovative starter system enables air to flow freely beneath the panel. This buffer between roof and deck serves as a cooling feature that helps homeowners reduce cooling costs over time.

A new valley cap seal keeps 99 percent of debris from entering the valley drain channel and keeps most of the water on the roof surface out of the valley drain channel.

Gerard’s Canyon Shake Shingle offers a lifetime warranty on surface coating, lifetime 120 mph wind warranty and 2.5-inch hail warranty. The warranties are also transferable.
