California's Title-24 Compliance
All of SteelROCK's panels, installed with or without battens meet California's Title-24 Energy Code due to their built-in air-space design. This air-space creates an Above Sheathing Ventilated (ASV) space above the spaced or solid sheathed roof deck.

Above Sheathing Ventilation
The original 12-month long, full-scale, outdoor test performed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in conjunction with the Department of Energy (DOE) at Knoxville TN. The report, based on this test, “The Effects of Infrared-Blocking Pigments and Deck Venting on Stone-Coated Metal Residential Roofs”, by William A. Miller PhD, dated January 2006, shows the benefits of creating an above sheathing space.

All SteelROCK Roof panels, due to their design and installation process, automaticlly provide an above sheathing ventilation (ASV) space directly above the solid or spaced sheathing on residential or light commercial construction. It is this air space that has been proven to provide excelent insulation benefits to the structure based on the ORNL ASV testing referenced above. Roof systems like SteelROCK's with an above sheathing ventilated space, provide energy equal to 25% total solar reflectance baseline asphalt shingle.

Conclusion
This means consumers and builders alike can now benefit a roof system (SteelROCK's PACIFIC SHAKE®, PACIFIC TILE®, PACIFIC VILLA-TILE®) that incorporates an average 1/3" air-space above the sheathed roof deck, creating a truly energy efficient roof.

How to Clean a Stone Coated Steel Roof
Due to inevitable accumulation of dust, dirt and moisture on roof surfaces over time, it may become necessary to periodically clean your stone coated steel roof. To clean your roof, use a solution consisting of 1 part household chlorine bleach to 1 part water. This solution can be sprayed on the dirty area(s) with a garden sprayer. Leave the solution on for at least an hour and preferably overnight. Rinse the treated areas with pressurized water from a garden hose. A brush with soft bristles can also be used to remove stubborn spots. A professional cleaner may wish to use a pressure washer to clean large areas more quickly. To avoid damage to the roof coating, the pressure washer should be set at no more than 500 pounds per square inch (psi) water pressure.
Note: Care should be taken to protect trees, plants and grass areas from excessive run-off.
