TAMKO® Announces Energy Efficient Ratings for Asphalt Shingles

TAMKO Building Products, Inc. has combined the reflectivity of “cool” roofing with the affordability of asphalt shingles to make energy efficient roofing an option for more consumers than ever. 

TAMKO’s Heritage® series laminated asphalt shingles and shingle accessories in Glacier White (dependent upon the region of the United States) and TAMKO’s Elite Glass-Seal® 3-Tab asphalt shingles in White and Glacier White are now ENERGY STAR® qualified for their ability to reflect a portion of the sun’s rays, potentially lowering the amount of energy needed to cool a home. Additionally, both products have also been rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC).

EnergyStar White Asphalt Shingles

“These new ratings for TAMKO products put energy efficient roofing within the reach of even the most cost-conscious consumer,” said TAMKO’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Stephen McNally.

For instance, TAMKO’s Elite Glass-Seal® 3-Tab shingle is one of TAMKO’s entry-level roofing options, and this includes the ENERGY STAR qualified White and Glacier White color options. With TAMKO’s Heritage® laminated asphalt shingles in the Glacier White color option, it’s possible to achieve the appearance of traditional wood shake roofing with the added bonus of an ENERGY STAR qualification.

Both Heritage® series shingles and shingle accessories in Glacier White and Elite Glass-Seal® 3-Tab shingles in White and Glacier White are available now, dependent on the region of the United States, and some are rated by the CRRC while others are ENERGY STAR qualified. For more information on product availability, CRRC rating and ENERGY STAR qualifications, visit TAMKO’s booth #W3101, January 9-11, at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida or go to TAMKO.com.
