New metal roof system colors available

Firestone Building Products Co. LLC has added seven colors to its metal roof system portfolio. Aged Zinc, Antique Copper, Burnished Slate, Natural Antique Copper, Natural Rust, Vintage and Weathered Zinc expand customers' options during the design of metal roof systems for commercial buildings. Firestone Building Products' metal roof systems reportedly are sustainable and available in a variety of finishes.

Membrane roof system has tinted resin

Kemper System America Inc. has introduced its Kemperol® 2K-FR cold liquid-applied membrane roof and waterproofing system with "thru color." Designed to protect low-slope roof systems, Kemperol 2K-FR is derived from Kemper System America's Kemperol Reflect 2K-FR system. Kemperol 2K-FR is said to eliminate the need for a color topcoat because the polyurethane resin is tinted throughout, reducing installation time. Intended for use on new or existing low-slope roof systems, the Class A fire-rated, odor-free, fully reinforced system is available in Stone Gray or Patina Green.
