Educational Event

Energy Performance-Impact Roof Color, System Type, Climate, Insulation


AIA NE Wisconsin

Energy Performance – Impact of Roof Color, System Type, Climate and Insulation

This course will cover energy performance of the roof assembly and materials. A review of American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) with a complete energy analysis comparing different roof assemblies and various color membranes associated to geographic locations, “Cool” roofing, and construction generated moisture. Included will be a discussion of benefits and concerns on the interfacing of roof garden and photovoltaic with the roofing assembly. The course will focus on the role single-ply membrane plays in today’s roofing market and its impact on tomorrow’s roof system performance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover where “Cool” roofing is most effective.
  • Identify present trends within the industry offering energy-efficient assemblies.
  • Comprehend energy-efficient roofing options and subsequent performance based on material color, insulation levels, building location and climatic conditions.
  • Review current life cycle calculators/software to show energy performance, carbon emission and lifecycle analysis.


Lunch is included. Registration is required.
