The cool metal roofs market is surging. In this course, you will learn the extent to which this increasingly popular roofing option can reduce cooling energy and lower peak energy demand in a building, as well as how to compare the thermal properties of various roofing materials. Also discussed are reflective pigments and their role in keeping a building cool. Pertinent codes, standards, incentive programs—all key considerations in specifying a roof—will be explained, as well as the ways in which cool roofs contribute to initiatives aimed at achieving zero net energy buildings over the next two decades.
