This course will describe the many benefits of using a white reflective PVC roofing membrane for the benefit of saving energy and reducing the use of fossil fuels. The decision of which buildings to use PVC roofs will be discussed on how the uses tie into the building use to minimize occupant disruption.
In this program the participants will learn about the physical characteristics of the different types of fleece backed single-ply membranes including; EPDM, TPO, PVC, and KEE HP, as well as gain an understanding of the benefits of the addition of fleece to the membrane. Benefits of two-part urethane adhesive will be discussed including; reducing VOC and adhesive order risks, product performance, the different methods of application, and packaging. We will review case studies on new construction, reroofing options, discuss the benefits to the building owner, as well as the sustainability and durability of this roofing assembly.
This presentation will go over the basics of edge metal, describe the importance of the perimeter edge in relation to the total roof system, explain the history behind metal roof edge standards such as ANSI/SPRI/ES-1, detail updates to roof edge standards, and explain performance and test ratings/protocol.
This course will describe Insulation and it’s associated applications in commercial low-slope roofing related to energy-efficient design, fire resistance, code compliance and enhancing building resiliency.
The look of standing seam metal roofs has been admired for centuries. Metal roofing systems, however, have always had their challenges with water infiltration being at the top. Now, customers no longer have to choose water-tightness over aesthetics with thermoplastic simulated standing seam metal roof systems.
This presentation is designed to help architects, specifiers, consultants and building owners understand the primary reasons why they may want to upgrade to an EPDM rubber roof. A basic understanding of available commercial roofing options is helpful but not absolutely necessary to gain insight from this program.
With the popularity of “Cool Roofs” in the industry, it is natural that roofing manufacturers who sell dark-colored roofs will try to discredit cool roofing benefits. This presentation looks at some of the cool roofing arguments and helps to distinguish fact from fiction.
