Title 24 – What it Means to Homeowners in California

Title 24 – Owens Corning Cool Roofs

The California Energy Code, also known as Title 24 was created by the California Building Standards Commission in 1978 in order to reduce California’s Energy Consumption. Only zones that are warmer in the summer and cooler in the winter require Title 24 Compliance.

In the Bay Area (Zone 12) either a Cool Roof Installation or an upgrade to R38 Insulation in the attic is required.

Energy Star® Owens Corning™ Duration Premium Cool roofing shingles reduce your energy bills by reflecting solar energy, decreasing the amount of heat on your roof. Duration shingles are unique in color and have highly reflective granules.

These granules bounce back the sun’s rays, helping result in:

  • Cooler roof temperatures
  • Less wear and tear on air conditioning systems
  • More energy savings
  • Lower carbon dioxide emissions
  • Reduced heat island effect and smog transferred to a home’s interior
