Backed by more than 100 years of UL expertise in evaluating roofing materials and systems, the UL Mark is widely recognized in the industry.
UL works with the roofing industry to develop standards that improve performance of roofing materials and systems for fire safety and/or property protection. From fire-resistance testing to emerging environmental requirements, UL provides the roofing materials and systems industry with a single source for all testing and certification.
UL performs accelerated and natural weathering, fire, wind resistance and wind uplift, structural, and physical property testing to UL Standards, ULC Standards, and the requirements of ASTM International and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as well as regional requirements such as those required by Florida’s Miami-Dade County and the Texas Department of Insurance. UL’s services are available for both commercial and residential roof materials and systems.
State and local municipalities are increasingly requiring roofing materials and systems to meet energy efficiency requirements, so we also offer ENERGY STAR® testing for roofing materials and systems. UL is also an accredited test laboratory for the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC), an independent organization that develops methods for evaluating and labeling the solar reflectance and thermal emittance of roofing products.
By partnering with UL, manufacturers can complete all their testing and certification needs with a widely recognized, independent organization that regulators trust and rely on.
