IRVINE, Calif. – Boral Roofing LLC, the nation’s largest provider of sustainable clay and concrete roof tile systems, announced that its Boral Cool Roof System will be featured on the 2017 New American Remodeled Home to debut in conjunction with the International Builders’
Show Jan. 10-12, 2017. 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 significantly improved in design, liveability and energy efficiency and will showcase Boral Roofing’s Saxony 900 Slate concrete roof tile.
“One of the core benefits of the Boral Cool Roof System is its superb energy efficiency performance,” said Rich Thomas, product manager for Boral Roofing. “While providing significant long-term energy savings to the homeowner, our roof tile is also durable with superior 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 significant 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 is long-lasting, 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 greatly in improving the overall performance of the home,” added Thomas. “It will also help the building visionaries update this home to address the architectural design trends of the future.”
Boral Roofing will also participate in the International Builders’ Show as an exhibitor in booth #W2583. The booth will showcase the Boral Cool Roof System, along with its energy efficiency performance benefits. The Cool Roof System can achieve up to 22 percent in energy bill savings, providing significant return on investment to the homeowner.
