In most cases, a building is first noticed by its street level exterior. But architects and building owners know that the roof is an equally – and perhaps even more – important place to look for an indication of building quality and sustainable performance. In addition to weathering the same environmental elements as any other part of the exterior, the roof faces additional stressors. The material chosen has great implications for how well that roof will perform in terms of releasing absorbed heat (thermal emittance) and how well it resists solar heat (solar reflectance).
