What Does Title 24 Mean for Your California Roofing Business?
Title 24, Part of the California Code of Regulations contains Building Energy Efficiency Standards designed to help reduce the state’s energy consumption. The California Energy Commission estimates that its energy efficiency standards have saved Californians more than $74 billion in reduced electricity bills since 1977.
While Title 24 is applicable only in California, other states may adopt similar energy standards in the future as energy consumption increases and strategies to reduce energy usage move further into the spotlight in the U.S.
GAF has a strong commitment to reducing energy consumption. GAF has just launched Timberline HD® Reflector Series™ Shingles, a new affordable cool shingle line. These shingles meet the prescriptive requirements of 2013 Title 24, Part 6, of the California Code of Regulations, are rated by the Cool Roofing Rating Council and meet the Los Angeles Green Building Code.
