  • Minimal carbon footprint, unlike traditional shingles
  • The low weight allows installation over most existing roofs
  • Eliminates the need for landfill disposal of old roofing
  • Low weight minimizes transportation cost
  • 100% recyclable if it is ever replaced
  • Virtually zero out-gassing

 Energy Efficiency

  • Special Kynar 500®or Hylar 5000 hI-R coating reflects radiant heat
  • Cuts energy costs by up to 20%
  • Reduces attic temperatures by up to 34%
  • Integral “dead” airspace blocks heat transfer by conduction
  • Very low “Embodied Energy”


  • The lower cooling load can extend air conditioner life
  • Integrates with most photovoltaic solar collection systems
  • Long-life sustainability
  • Aluminum products can be repainted but will likely never need to be replaced
