Don't be caught unprepared by catastrophic roof failure. Taking this course will help you to identify roof design considerations, evaluate reroofing costs, apply code requirements and compare traditional roofs with newer "cool roof" technologies.
Based on the information presented in this course, you should be able to:
Identify roof design considerations and explain how these factors influence roof system selection and installation toВ optimize building sustainability and improve occupant health and welfare.
Evaluate reroofing costs in terms of ownership objectives, upkeep, and occupancy demands to determine an appropriate scope of work that meets budget needs and long-term facility goals.
Apply code requirements for energy conservation, fire protection, wind uplift, environmental contaminants, and historic and landmark preservation to roof repair and replacement projects.
Compare traditional ballasted roof assemblies with newer "cool roof " technologies in terms of heat gain and energy performance, beyond consideration of solar reflectance index (SRI) alone.
