IKO’s residential roofing shingles now include IKO Cambridge Cool Colors, architectural laminate shingles that are engineered to meet the California Energy Commission Building Standards Code, Title 24. IKO Cambridge Cool Colors feature a shingle coating embedded with special granules that reflect a greater amount of solar energy than standard roofing shingles. This high-reflectance technology allows less solar radiation, or heat, to enter a home through the attic and also allows absorbed radiation to be released back into the atmosphere. IKO Cambridge Cool Colors are offered in four color options: Arctic White, Desert Gold, Dual Grey and Valley Oak. All four colors are available throughout California with additional limited availability in surrounding West Coast states while Dual Grey is offered nationwide.

Atlas Roofing announces the release of the Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge, a high-profile hip and ridge shingle design that adds dimension to any roof.

Atlas Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge featuring Scotchgard Protector shingles were created to provide high-performance hip and ridge protection for roofs in both sun belt and snow belt climates.

Each Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge shingle is pre-cut to save roofers time on the deck and produce a more consistent appearance. Workers simply remove each shingle unit from its carton and place it on the ridge as-is. Shingles are packed 30 per box with each box covering 20 linear feet.

Atlas Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge featuring Scotchgard Protector shingles are manufactured with SBS modified asphalt for increased durability, longer life and easier installation. SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) forms a polymer network within the bitumen, giving the bitumen rubber-like characteristics as well as resistance to aging and weathering. This product is an eligible accessory for the Atlas Signature Select System warranty. Equally important, Atlas Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge shingles are Class A UL R4052 approved and meet the following standards: UL 997 Wind Resistance, CAN/CSA-A123.5 and ASTM D3462.

Because Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge is made with Scotchgard Protector, the color is supported by an Atlas lifetime warranty against the black streaks caused by algae. Atlas offers six popular colors to choose from. Visit the Pro-Cut High Profile Hip & Ridge Color Guide to determine which one will match best with your selected shingle color.

EternaTile consists of 50-mil of a proprietary cement-infused Geopolymer bonded to foam for a lifetime finish. It provides an R-17 value or about 16 inches of pink insulation and was designed to withstand wind speeds of more than 250 mph while being impervious to cracking, chipping or peeling from inclement weather or non-edged projectiles. Intertek testing demonstrates the exposed surface area of EternaTile seldom exceeds the surrounding outdoor temperature for certain lighter colors. It does not feel hot to the touch because of its UV-resistant top layer. These features eliminate condensation between tiles and roofing substrate from ongoing day to night temperature variations. Without routine moisture build up under the tile, the substrate will stay drier, yielding a prolonged life expectancy.

EternaTile can be installed on any existing sloped roof with a 3:12 or steeper without engineer approval because of its light weight. The tile product is designed to have a lifetime warranty and the Eterna”G” replaceable solar module makes the entire product line a catalyst in the building sector.

Metal Roof Ridge Vent Eliminates Foam Closure Failure

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.
