Make the Right Choice for Your New Roof
IKO Cambridge Cool Colors shingles can be used to comply with California's Title 24, Part 6 cool roof requirements to help reduce a home's carbon footprint, potentially reduce home energy bills and possibly increase property values. Now, IKO's NEW COOL and COOL PLUS color blends with an SRI of 20 or greater can boost a roofs reflectivity by 25 percent over the Title 24, Part 6 minimum standard of SRI 16 for steep sloped roofs! Homeowners who reside in Los Angeles City and County, where cool roofing reflectance requirements are in effect, can use cool roofing shingles with an SRI of 20 or greater, in order to comply.
Shingles with an SRI of 16+ can still be used to comply with California's Title 24, Part 6 cool roof requirements. Some lighter colored shingles can achieve a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 16 or greater with our standard granules. However, to achieve an SRI of 20 or greater on the darker hues, we embed surface granules that are specially designed with infrared-reflective pigments to transmit less of the suns solar energy or radiant heat into your home's attic.
This helps your roof and the home it protects stay cooler than if it were roofed with conventional shingles. Exactly how much energy can be saved will depend on your areas geography, climate, utility rates, your homes HVAC system and other factors.
