Measuring Energy and Environmental Impacts: A New Modeling Tool for Roofing Professionals

All roofing professionals share a common goal of delivering roofing systems offering tangible value. However, because so many different energy and environmental outcomes may be impacted by roof systems, few tools are available to quantify the benefits of a sustainable roof system design. This paper will discuss how roofpointâ„¢, a new sustainable roof rating system, has been adapted to provide a comprehensive modeling tool to measure roof system benefits. This paper will review how the roofpoint valuation model was developed and how it can be applied to a variety of roofing projects in different climates and locations. examples using model buildings will be reviewed, and a working template of the model will be provided to all attendees.
