Cool roofing metals are sustainable and energy efficient. But equally as important, these new-generation coated metals offer tremendous freedom of choice when it comes to color. At Sheffield Metals International—one of the country’s leading providers of roofing coil and flat stock to jobsite metal roofing manufacturers—the company’s COOLR® metals are available in a wide range of 70% Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000®-based colors, including metallics and low-gloss colors.
One of the several popular low-glare offerings is Antique Black. It was recently chosen for a large custom home located in central Virginia. The project’s 10,200 sq. ft. standing seam metal roof system was manufactured and installed by Blue Ridge Roofing Inc. of Charlottesville, VA.
Blue Ridge fabricated the standing seam panels from 20”-wide, 26-gauge Galvalume-coated steel coil, and the components necessary to complete the installation from matching 48” x 120” flat sheets.
COOLR® metals meet the performance criteria of the EPA's Energy Star program. Sheffield stocks COOLR® metals in more than two dozen colors and acrylic-coated Galvalume. Coil and sheet stock is available in a variety of gauges, widths and substrates for low- and steep-slope applications. The metal features 25%-minimum recycled content and is 100% recyclable.
