Boral Roofing has turned a standard building material into a formidable weapon – not just against sun and rain, but also air pollution. Over one year, a 2,000 square foot BoralPure® Smog Eating Tile roof can oxidize the same amount of Nitrogen Oxide as a car produces from being driven up to 10,800 miles*.
All natural Boral Bricks are sustainably manufactured and packaged in the US with zero waste. Boral Bricks can deliver up to 8% energy savings, save up to 5% in homeowners’ insurance rate reductions, and add up to 6% in higher resale value.
Boral clay pavers are available in 9 colors, and 3 edge textures. These pavers perform extremely well in any outdoor living application. Pavers can be laid in a variety of patterns, and antique product can be pre-blended at the plant for a custom look. Best of all, clay pavers never, ever fade.
Boral Cultured Stone® manufactured stone veneer beautifies any home. The product is manufactured with a minimum of 54% pre-consumer waste stream material. It also meets the indoor air quality standards of the stringent GREENGuard children & Schools standard, which represents the most rigorous building product emissions criteria to date.
