ENERGY STAR® rated Matterhorn® Metal Roofing shingles from CertainTeed are able to reflect up to 66% of incoming solar radiation.
Every Matterhorn® roof is coated with a PVDF Tri-Pigment Reflective Paint System, which helps reflect solar heat on a roof. Matterhorn Metal Roofs have the ability to re-emit up to 89% of absorbed heat. This keeps the roofing surface cool and prevents excess heat from escaping into the home, reducing energy expenditures on air conditioning.
The lowered demand on electricity also improves the electricity grid and reduces greenhouse gas emissions from both homes and power production plants.
