Metal Roofing: The Only Solar-Ready Roof

A metal roof offers numerous advantages in terms of energy conservation, sustainability, cost and low maintenance. Solar energy offers facilities an opportunity to further lower energy costs, and even become net-zero or net-positive. But when using a roof to generate solar energy, many installers turn to metal as the only option. This webinar educates architects, owners, facility managers and contractors regarding the benefits that can be achieved when pairing a solar system with a metal roof—and answers why metal is the only solar-ready roof.

Disclosure: The Newest Dimension in Green Building

With the development of the latest green building standards and guidelines such as LEED®, ASHRAE 189.1, and the International Green Building Code, new concepts are emerging to report and document the sustainability of the products used in green buildings. These new concepts include Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations (HPDs), as well as a number of multi-attribute product standards developed by ASTM, ANSI, and others. Because of the wide variety of materials required to construct the exterior skin of the building, the building envelope industry faces a daunting task of understanding and adapting to these new concepts.  

In this article, Dr. Jim Hoff, Vice President of Research at the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing will guide you through the new jargon of product disclosure and provide a roadmap for your organization to adapt and thrive in the new era of material transparency.
