Good news, Hawaii, there are new energy-efficient, asphalt-shingle colors on the horizon for an affordable price.

The asphalt shingle arguably is the most commonly used roofing product here in Hawaii. This is mostly due to its affordable price point, durability and variability offered for both color, profile and warranty coverage options.

CertainTeed is one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of asphalt shingles with a very diversified portfolio. CertainTeed uses different names for its shingles to communicate the different components and warranties available. Solaris is the name of the company’s reflective, energy-efficient line. This shingle line has a great look and does a tremendous job at repelling the sun’s harmful rays.


There are three levels CertainTeed offers in this reflective line: Landmark Solaris, Landmark Solaris Gold and the grand master of them all, Landmark Solaris Platinum. Solaris Platinum has a whopping .40 Solar Reflectance (SR). It also is the most reflective asphalt shingle on the market today, and will no doubt keep your home cooler. However, this technology does come at a price. Solaris Gold and Landmark Solaris come in at a respectable .26-.27 SR, and are mid-low tier, as far as cost goes. While all options are desirable, the colors available in the entry-level shingle have been slim. But that has all changed; there are three new colors that the company now is offering in the entry-level Solaris: Mauna Loa, Adobe and Aged Cedar. What this really means for home and business owners is a variety of energy-efficient colors at a price not much higher than a regular non-reflective shingle.
