Roof replacement accounts for 75% of all the roofing materials installed annually in the US. This is due to relatively short lifecycles of most roofing products that have been used over the past 20 to 30 years like wood shakes and asphalt shingles. When considering a roofing product for a reroof, life-cycle costs and other factors should be taken into account. Boral Roofing offers a full complement of lightweight clay and concrete roofing products designed for use in re-roof situations.
“Boral Roofing is a subsidiary of Boral USA, and is the country’s largest premium provider of complete roofing and re-roofing solutions for architects as well as commercial and residential builders. Boral Roofing operates 12 clay and concrete tile manufacturing plants throughout the U.S.”.
With so many styles and colors to choose from, you’ll find that adding a tile roof to your home is one of the easiest and most effective ways to complement its look and increase its value.
Tile roofs are highly insulating and prevent much of the sun’s heat from penetrating the building. Boral offers tiles in a wide range of profiles in highly reflective colors and certain tiles meet Energy Star and U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating.
According to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, an independent testing agency, a family in a typical single family house could save up to 22% per year on heating and cooling costs compared to the standard asphalt shingle roof.
