Tilcor’s Class A cool roof system is an ideal solution for hot climates as it’s designed to keep homes cool on sweltering summer days. Its batten based system provides superb ventilation and heat dissipation by allowing for airflow under the panels.
In this article, we’re going to explore the cool roof system solution and how they meet the California Energy Commission’s Title 24 cool roof standard.
Tilcor’s Class A cool roofs not only keep temperatures down inside the house, they’re also highly durable, look amazing and have a lifetime warranty.
To keep houses cool they use Sol-R-Skin, a combination material of roof underlayment and reflective foil insulation that forms a radiant barrier. This is first installed over vertical counter battens with horizontal battens placed on top of the Sol-R-Skin. This is topped off with our premium Tilcor panels.
This system creates an air space under the roofing panels which allows the radiant heat to reflect off the Sol-R-Skin underlayment. (The heat then feeds back into the airspace to be exhausted out of the ridge). Sol-R-Skin has the highest R-Value available on the market today, meaning it has a high resistance to heat flow.
The above picture shows how the Sol-R-Skins fits underneath the horizontal battens, with our stone coated steel tiles sitting on top.
Tilcor’s Class A cool roof technology is the ultimate roofing system for a warmer climate. It’s designed to last a lifetime and doesn’t compromise on roof aesthetic or durability.
