Petersen Aluminum offers one of the widest varieties of color palettes available in the standing seam metal roofing industry. We offer a total of 38 different hues carefully selected to complement nearly any building material or color scheme. These finishes not only provide unmatched beauty and long-term performance, but can also lead to energy savings and conservation.
Of these 38 colors:
- 24 are Cool Roof Ratings Council (CRRC) certified
ü Cool roofs emit and reflect the sun’s heat back to the atmosphere instead of absorbing into the building, providing benefits of energy savings, increased occupant comfort and reduced heat island effect. The CRRC has established the methodology for roofing manufacturers to accurately report reflectance and emmittance data.
- 31 are Energy Star Rated
ü The Energy Star program aims to help consumers save money through more efficient and environmentally sound product selection. For standing seam metal roofing, on sloped roofs of 2:12 or greater, the initial reflectivity of the coating must be 25 or higher, and the three-year exposure must be 15 or higher.
- 20 are LEED certified colors
ü The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design provides a benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. For standing seam metal roofs that have an SRI of 29 or better on steep slope roofs (slope greater than 2:12), points can be achieved in Sustainable Sites Section 7.2 – Heat Island Effect. Note that for low-sloped roofs (slopes under 2:12), PAC’s Bone White finish meets the requirement of an SRI of 78 or better.
