Roofing Goes High Performance

Long gone are the days when roofing was merely roofing, designed to turn back rain and snow and nothing more. Increasingly, all building components, including roofing, are considered for their environmental and long-term performance characteristics.

Now, the performance of a roof can be measured in terms of heating and cooling loads, environmental attributes, and even worker productivity. When facility managers factor in the cost of tear-off and replacement, suddenly performance — and its effect on the life-cycle cost of the roof — takes on a whole new meaning. It's not simply a matter of consider up-front capital costs and subsequent operating costs.

Instead, it's total cost considerations, from origin, to longevity, to recycling the material upon tear-off and replacement.

That's why facility managers are increasingly considering high-performance single-ply roofing.
