VALLEY FORGE, Pa. - Building on a strong tradition of
high-quality building products that maximize the energy efficiency of homes and
buildings, CertainTeed has launched Landmark Solaris(TM), a new solar
reflective roofing shingle that helps reduce energy costs while boosting a
home’s curb appeal with vibrant, rich colors.
Unveiled Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Greenbuild International
Conference and Expo in Boston, Landmark Solaris shingles feature roofing
granules that reflect solar energy and radiate heat far better than traditional
asphalt roofing shingles. During the summer months, Landmark Solaris can reduce
the temperature of a roof, thereby reducing energy usage and utility bills
while maintaining the beautiful aesthetic appeal of traditional shingles.
Coupled with CertainTeed’s wide range of fiberglass
insulation products and insulated vinyl siding, Landmark Solaris offers yet
another way to maximize the energy efficiency of homes and buildings.
While traditional cool roofing products are limited to a
white color, the Landmark Solaris color palette features five rich brown and
dark grey hues including Weathered Wood, Burnt Sienna, Resawn Shake, Heather
Blend and Moire Black. Solaris features a limited lifetime warranty against
manufacturing defects on residential applications and is designed to withstand
up to 130 mile per hour winds, when installed with CertainTeed starter products
and hip and ridge accessories.
Landmark Solaris shingles are rated by the Cool Roof
Rating Council (CCRC), meet California’s
Title 24 requirements for cool steep roofing, and may qualify for credits
through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED(R)), ENERGY
STAR(R) and the National Association of Home Builders’ Green Building (NAHB)
Program. In addition, Landmark Solaris shingles feature a Class A fire
resistance rating and are certified to meet ASTM D3462 and ASTM D3018 Type
1. The product is currently available in the Western Region of the United States
and is eligible for rebates through local utility companies in select areas.
