Harnessing Transparency: The Rising Impact of Environmental Declarations


The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) and its member companies have developed Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for asphalt roofing systems.

This initiative, aligned with ISO 14025 standards, aims to enhance sustainable building practices by offering detailed life cycle information on roofing systems. These EPDs contribute to LEED v4 and v4.1 points in the Building Product Disclosure and Optimization category, encouraging the use of products with transparent environmental impact data.

Cool Roofing: Sustainable Solutions for Urban Heat Reduction

Our Premier Radiance® shingles go beyond simply providing your home with a protective cover. These shingles are enhanced with solar-reflective granules that bounce back the sun’s heat-producing ultraviolet rays, potentially decreasing the heat that enters your home and aiding in keeping it cooler. With Premier Radiance, available in four vibrant colors, you won’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for functionality.

Leveraging advanced cool technology from PABCO Roofing Products, the Premier Radiance® solar reflective shingles are an ideal solution for those living in warmer climates where reliance on air conditioning is higher. Furthermore, Premier Radiance® adheres to the UL790 Class A Fire Resistance Standard, offering an added layer of safety and peace of mind.
