GAF Offers Products That Meet Green Building Code and Title 24 Guidelines

In response to recent changes in local code and increased demands for asphalt shingles featuring higher reflectivity levels, GAF offers several products and colors that meet the new Los Angeles Green Building Code and California Title 24 guidelines.

The Los Angeles Green Building Code reflectivity requirement for a residential asphalt shingle is a minimum three-year aged solar reflectance of 0.20, a minimum thermal emittance of 0.75, OR a SRI (solar reflectance index) of 16.

In accordance with this new code, GAF has 11 products that have been tested and listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council for sale in the city of Los Angeles and all other areas covered by California Title 24:
