Cool Energy House Chooses Classic Metal Roofing

Written by Todd Miller on January 14, 2012 | Filed under: Articles

Classic Metal Roofing Systems’ Oxford Shingle aluminum roofing system has been chosen for use on the Cool Energy House being built in conjunction with the International Builders Show. The Cool Energy House is a joint effort of the Building America Retrofit Alliance and the Consortium for Advanced Residential Buildings. The home will be open for viewing during the annual builders show held in Orlando, Florida February 8 – 11.

Classic Metal Roofing Systems, based in Piqua, Ohio, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialty residential metal roofing. According to Classic president Todd Miller, “We are very pleased to have our product chosen for this very important house which has been designed to use today’s latest green building technologies to produce a house that is sustainable, energy efficient, and very liveable. Our Oxford Shingle meets the goals of this project very well.”

Introduced by Classic in 2000, Oxford Shingle is a system of fully interlocking aluminum roofing shingles designed to withstand even the punishing weather that is regularly faced by hurricane-prone Florida and other states. The product is designed to have the traditional beauty of slate and is available in several fade and chalk resistant colors. The many benefits of metal roofing are causing it to be increasingly chosen by homeowners across the United States as well as in other countries.

Miller continued, “I believe that Oxford Shingle was chosen for the Cool Energy House for three reasons. First, it is produced from metal that is 95% recycled in content. Second, it is a very durable and lasting product which is 100% recyclable at the end of its long, useful life. And, third, it features a special heat-reflective coating that reduces a home’s air conditioning loads by up to 20% and even more in many climates.”

Classic will be providing promotional materials on the product that will be available on-site when the Cool Energy House is open for viewing. Additional information on Classic and Oxford Shingle is available at
