- Friday, May 15, 2009
CORONA, CALIFORNIA – May 15, 2009 – US Tile announced the addition of nine CRRC Cool Roof rated colors to their existing Cool Roof portfolio. The additional Cool Roof colors give US Tile the most complete, naturally occurring color portfolio that reaches a depth and vibrancy other products cannot match.
The clays that are used to produce US Tiles' Cool Roof products have naturally occurring reflectivity that eliminates the need for paints or additives to reach an SRI (Solar Reflectivity Index) rating of 29 or greater for compliance on LEED projects. In fact, over 75% of US Tiles standard portfolio of authentic clay Mission tiles have a Cool Roof rating of 29 or better.
US Tile clay roofing products are covered by an industry leading Limited Lifetime Warranty that covers fading for 20 years. This insures building owners that they will continue to see the benefits of their US Tile Cool Roof products long after many other Cool Roof products have faded, lost their reflectivity or need to be replaced.
The expansion of US Tiles' CRRC Cool Roof rated products adds to US Tiles industry leading sustainability features and benefits. These benefits include Cradle to Cradle certification for all of their domestically produced tile (the only tile manufacturer in the world to earn this designation), as well as recycled content that is between 49% - 59%, 100 % recyclability, and their recently introduced, fully integrated solar solution, Sole Power Tiles.
US Tile is the nations leading clay tile roofing manufacturer, producing the most complete line of aesthetically superior roofing styles for residential and commercial applications on the market today. Styles include traditional two-piece mission tile, value engineered S-tile, slate and shake profiles, as well as small barrel and handmade, imported tiles. US Tile products are available in all 50 states as well as Canada, regardless of climate conditions.
