The Ecoset tile roofing system for steep slope roofing is specifically designed for California's Title 24 mandate and other building codes that are beginning to implement energy-efficient guidelines for the construction industry.

The Ecoset system consists of a waterproofing underlayment, a layer of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation adhered by ribbons of a two-component polyurethane free-rise adhesive and an approved roofing tile adhered to the insulation by individual paddies of Polyfoam's adhesive. The R-value of the five-part Ecoset system is 10.68. Testing shows that the Ecoset system reduces peak heat flow through the roof deck by approximately 80 percent versus a dark heat-absorbing shingle in the summer, according to the company. Ecoset also limits nighttime heat loss in the winter by nearly 70 percent compared to direct-nailed shingle roofs.
