Energy Efficient Commercial Roofing Strategies
Todd M. Kaska, Vice President of Preferred Accounts at D. C. Taylor Co., had the privilege of presenting at Principia’s Energy Efficient Roofing Conference in Charlotte, NC, in April. What follows are highlights from Kaska’s presentation.
When it’s time for your next roofing project, consider the impact that this assembly can have on the facility’s energy expense. Keep the following in mind.
- How your facility and its roof function, impact which energy-efficient roof options are most practical.
- Evaluate where and how your facility is consuming energy. Your roof system can impact the amount of energy required for heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting.
- Consider corporate sustainability goals and energy-efficient initiatives. A roofing project can contribute to their achievement.
Energy-Efficient Roofing Strategies:
No. 1: Increase roof R-value with proper insulation.
No. 2: Reduce thermal discontinuities.
No. 3: Install a climate-appropriate roof surface.
No. 4: Restrict air movement and thermal transfer.
No. 5: Install daylighting skylights.
