Retro Is the Way to Go

Builders looking for the retro-inspired feel of slate on their roofs without paying for it should take a gander at Atlas Roofing's StormMaster Slate shingle line.

An Instant Klassic

KlassicKolors is a pre-painted Terne II by Follansbee. The roof is coated with the company's ZT (zinc/tin) alloy and then painted with solar reflective coatings. The ZT alloy extends the life of the metal and provides enhanced durability. Available in designer and custom colors, the coating's low sheen gives a traditional look.

Hi-Def Shingles

The Timberline Prestique High Definition shingles have a unique, patented shadow band that results in a dramatic, higher contrast appearance on the roof. Made by GAF-Elk, the granule-backed shingles are available in a variety of popular colors, including the company's Signature Series. 30- and 40-year and lifetime limited warranties are offered.

Light on Weight, Heavy on Technology

Made of what the company calls "microspheres," the Microposite lap siding is made of a lightweight core material combined with proprietary resins that act as a binding agent. The result forms a closed-cell-type siding that is many times lighter than fiber cement with excellent insulating properties.

You're a Star, Kid

The EcoVent is a continuous tile-over ridge vent that sits under the hip and ridge tiles to efficiently remove hot, moist air from the attic space of a building. Made by EcoStar, it is manufactured in 20-foot long by 10 ½-inch wide rolls to offer more significant coverage.
