This new "cool roof" line from Met-Tile combines weather protection with energy savings. The updated roofing line features a high performance architectural coating system in 10 colors. These coatings have solar-reflectivity values that meet or exceed Energy Star requirements, according to the company. The company also claims that such products help prevent greenhouse gas emissions and meet EPA guidelines. The Met-Tile roofing offers wind ratings of more than 230 mph and complies with most local, state and national codes. It also carries a Class 4 rating for impact resistance, the measure of a roof's ability to withstand hail damage.
