From the Architect’s Corner – What is EcoBlend?

Recently I worked with an architect on a university building project where the goal is to obtain LEED Gold. His question was regarding color and how our colors could contribute to LEED points for this project. DaVinci EcoBlend® are colors approved by the Cool Roof Rating Council and are ENERGY STAR® Qualified product. They reflect sunlight away from your home, resulting in greater reductions in the cooling load which means better energy efficiency. The approved colors are:

  • EcoBlend Weathered Gray (in Medium, Medium Light, Medium Dark, Light and Dark Weathered Gray)
  • EcoBlend Castle Gray (in Dark, Light and Medium Gray)

Any individual color or color blend can be plugged into any product mold, no problem.

Happy Friday, Architects!
