It takes more than shingles to protect your home. It takes an integrated system of components and layers designed to help perform in three critical areas.
Seal Helps create a water-proof barrier
Defend Helps protect against nature's elements
Breathe For balanced attic ventilation
Energy Efficient Tile Cool Roof System
Boral offers a range of cool roof tiles in various profiles to reflect the sun’s heat. Also, the air space between the tiles and roof deck provide ventilation with Boral’s roof materials and products to make an energy saving roof to cool the building during hot summer days and provide better protection against leaks. A house with a Boral Energy Efficient Cool Roof System is more comfortable to live in while saving energy costs to keep the building cool and can last longer than traditional roof construction.
As the sun heats the roof, the roof tiles and air beneath the tiles warms up. Elevated or vented battens allow the warmed air to rise to the peak of the roof and escape outside through the ridge vent, which can also be used to vent the attic. Vented Eave Risers at the bottom of the roof draw cool air into the roof system beneath the tiles. No electrical or mechanical parts for easy maintenance and reliability.
Boral's Energy Efficient Cool Roof System can be used with any slate, clay or concrete tiles with various profiles from slate to shake to S-tile and more. Letting your roof system breathe will help the materials stay dry to last longer.
Seal. Helps Create a Water-Proof Barrier
Block water resulting from ice damming, wind-driven rains and normal water flow. A properly sealed roof helps prevent rot and mold.
Defend. Helps Protect Against Nature's Elements
Add a tough, yet beautiful layer of defense with strong adhesion that resists blow offs and helps shed water away from the roof deck. Helps protect the most vulnerable areas such as eaves and peaks.
Breathe. Optimize Airflow in your Attic
Reduces heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation. This helps air flow through the attic to manage temperature and moisture.
