Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Our Cool Roof System
The energy-efficient Westlake Royal™ Cool Roof System is made up of several components that allow air to flow under the roof deck. When combined with the product’s thermal mass and Cool Roof reflectivity, it provides one of the most energy-efficient roof systems available on the market today.
A family in a typical single-family house with an energy-efficient Westlake Royal™ Cool Roof System could save up to 22% per year on heating and cooling costs compared to the standard composition asphalt shingle roof.
CRRC Rated Products
Westlake Royal Building Solutions offers an extensive portfolio of CRRC (Cool Roof rating Council) rated cool roof colors across all of our product lines. Specialized pigments help reflect as much as 53% of the sun’s solar energy compared to 10% for a typical asphalt shingle.
Westlake Royal Building Solutions Cool Roof products also have the ability to give off heat rather than absorb and hold it (thermal emittance), performing better than most products on the market today with Thermal Emittance of up to 86%.
California Title 24, Part 6 Building Energy Efficiency Standards were established to reduce California’s energy consumption. Cool roofs are important elements of an energy efficient structure, offering significant energy and cost savings. The California Energy Commission is updating the standards effective May 1, 2021, to include new prescriptive cool roof requirements in select zones for low-rise residential steep-slope roofs.
