New Colors Available for Concrete Roof Tile Line

Boral Roofing LLCBoral Roofing LLC introduces a set of new colors for its signature concrete roof tile line. Inspired by the beach landscape, the six new hues in the collection are particularly well suited to complement homes of the contemporary and transitional architectural styles, according to the manufacturer.

“We are introducing these new colors to address demand among home buyers and owners for highly durable and energy efficient roofing tile in lighter, more neutral shades,” said Rich Thomas, marketing product manager. “Through extensive study of consumer trends, Boral Roofing has discovered a growing desire among buyers for their homes to provide sensorial relief from all the technology and information they absorb daily. Exteriors and interiors alike are being designed with less visual clutter and with cooler, reduced color palettes. Our new color collection reflects these shifts.”

Boral Roofing’s new colors are inspired by the beach landscape. The collection includes new hues in Ashen Blend, Café Sand Blend, Mottled White Blend, Atmosphere Blend, Oceana Blend, and Beach Blonde Blend, with each shade reflecting an element commonly found at the seaside. All these neutral shades summon a sense of understated ease and elegance as cool tones with undertones of grey.

According to the manufacturer, the new collection shares all the many benefits of Boral Roofing’s complete line of concrete tile systems including durability, protection from the elements, and energy efficiency. According to the 2007 NAHB Study on Life Expectancy of Home Components, the tile dramatically reduces the heating and cooling demands of the structure, and concrete tile offers a lengthy lifespan, with a replacement expected every 75 years.

The tile is low maintenance and offers a Class A fire rating. Additionally, the concrete tile lends added benefit to the environment as a product manufactured utilizing abundant, locally-sourced, and naturally occurring geologic material. Boral Roofing’s concrete tile is also fully recyclable at the end of its life on the roof.

The new concrete roof tile colors are available in the Southeast and Northeast United States, as well as in Quebec. The collection may be previewed in Boral Roofing’s Boral Lifestyle Brochure.

Boral Roofing Concrete Roof Tile Is Featured on Remodeled Home

Boral Roofing LLC, a provider of sustainable clay and concrete roof tile systems, has announced that its Boral Cool Roof System will be featured on the 2017 New American Remodeled Home. Located in Lake Nona in South Orlando, the New American Remodeled Home is a joint collaboration of “Professional Builder” magazine, National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and builder Phil Kean Design Group. The project exemplifies how an existing home may be improved in design, livability and energy efficiency and will showcase Boral Roofing’s Saxony 900 Slate concrete roof tile.
 
“One of the benefits of the Boral Cool Roof System is its energy efficiency performance,” says Rich Thomas, product manager for Boral Roofing. “While providing long-term energy savings to the building owner, our roof tile is also durable with curb appeal.”
 
The Boral Cool Roof System to be featured on the home includes a number of key components including the Saxony 900 Slate roof tile, elevated batten system, vented eave risers and ridge vent. The system’s elements work together to both protect the home from the elements and to conserve energy and prevent temperature fluctuations within the home. These energy efficient qualities reduce heating and cooling demands and provide energy bill savings for the lifetime of the roof.
 
Saxony 900 Slate is designed to complement both French and Tudor architectural styles and fully captures the appearance of natural slate. The roof tile requires minimal maintenance and is Class A Fire rated. The roof tile replaces the original tile roof put in place when the home was built in 1987. Premier Roofing completed the installation of the roof tile.
 
“The Boral Cool Roof System will assist in improving the overall performance of a building,” adds Thomas. “It will also help the building visionaries update this home to address the architectural design trends of the future.”
