Black or White Membrane: What is the Sustainable and Energy Efficient Choice?

The one-hour session will cover energy performance of the roof assembly and materials, a review of ASHRAE with a complete energy analysis comparing different roof assemblies and various color membranes associated to geographic locations, “Cool” roofing, and construction generated moisture. Included will be a discussion of benefits and concerns on the interfacing of roof garden and photovoltaic with the roofing assembly. The conference will focus on the role single-ply membrane plays in today’s roofing market and its impact on tomorrow’s roof system performance.

1. Learn where “Cool” roofing is most effective.
2. Present trends within the industry offering Energy-Efficient assemblies.
3. Understanding energy-efficient roofing options and subsequent performance based on material color, insulation levels, building location and climatic conditions
4. Review current life cycle calculators/software to show energy performance, carbon emission and lifecycle analysis
