There are many types of roofs to choose from, so how do you decide which is best for you? Are you concerned about energy costs to cool the building? How long before the roof needs replacement or maintenance, and what will the cost be? If you find yourself asking these questions, then an energy-efficient Westlake RoyalTM Cool Roof System may be the right choice for you.
Westlake Royal Roofing Solutions offers a range of cool roof tiles in various profiles to reflect the sun’s heat. Also, the air space between the tiles and the roof deck provides ventilation between materials. This creates an energy-saving system that cools a building during hot summer days and provides better protection against leaks. A house with an energy-efficient Westlake RoyalTM Cool Roof System provides a comfortable living climate, savings on energy costs, and can last longer than traditional roof construction.
As the sun heats the roof, roof tiles and air beneath the tiles warm up. Elevated or vented battens allow the warm 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 are needed, providing easy maintenance and reliability.
The Westlake RoyalTM Cool Roof System can be used with any slate, clay steel, 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.
