  8. 8. What is Cool Metal Roofing? <ul><li>Metal Roofing is Cool </li></ul><ul><li>Cool metal roofing is a family of sustainable, energy efficient roofing products comprised of unpainted metal and prepainted metal. </li></ul><ul><li>It is available in a wide variety of finishes, colors, textures, and profiles for steep-slope and low-slope applications. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How Cool Metal Roofs works Solar Reflectance Emmitance
  10. 10. Same technology as the Stealth Bomber <ul><li>Cool Metal Roofing is Highly Reflective – using Pigment Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Metal roofing meets the EPA Energy Star Roof Products Program performance criteria. Metal roofing is also eligible for other cool roof incentive programs. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Cool Metal Roof Vocabulary <ul><ul><li>Reflectivity – a measure of the portion of solar radiation that is reflected away from a surface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Emissivity - the capacity of a body to re-emit infrared energy that has already been absorbed </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. TSR = Total Solar Reflectance TE = Thermal Emittance TSR=0.70 TE=0.87 TSR=0.26 TE=0.87 TSR=0.26 TE=0.87 TSR=0.29 TE=0.84 TSR=0.26 TE=0.87 TSR=0.67 TE=0.87 Reflects 70% Suns Heat Energy Absorbs 30% of Suns Heat Energy

  15. 15. Reduce Urban Heat Island!
  16. 16. Life Expectancy <ul><li>Based on a study conducted by Ducker in 2003, metal roofs have a significantly longer expected service life than either asphalt or single-ply roofs. According to Ducker findings, metal roofs are expected to last 17 years longer than asphalt and 20 years longer than single-ply. </li></ul><ul><li>Expected Roof Life Years </li></ul><ul><li>Metal: 40 </li></ul><ul><li>Asphalt:23 </li></ul><ul><li>Single-ply:20 </li></ul><ul><li>Due to its credible long life and documented durability, metal roofing makes an attractive investment. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Life Cycle
  19. 19. Life Cycle Cost <ul><li>According to Ducker’s 2004 research study, the life cycle cost of a metal roof is significantly less than an asphalt or single-ply roof. </li></ul><ul><li>The expected life cycle cost of metal roofs reported in this study is 30 cents per square foot per year, asphalt is 37 cents per square foot per year, and single-ply roofs is 57 cents per square foot per year. </li></ul>

  22. 22. Other Cool Roofing facts <ul><li>Cool Metal Roofing is Very Durable </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Metal roofs are credibly proven to last over 30 years with minimal maintenance. Metal roofs are documented to resist wind, hail, fire, and earthquakes. Painted metal roofs retain 95% of their initial reflectance and emittance over time. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cool Metal Roofing has Recycled Content and is Recyclable </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Metal roofs typically have a minimum recycled content of 25%. Metal roofs are 100% recyclable at the end of a long, useful life. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cool Metal Roofing is Aesthetically Pleasing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Metal roofing is available in a wide range of finishes, colors and profiles, giving architects extensive design flexibility. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Metal Roofing and LEED
  24. 24. USGBC <ul><ul><li>The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from every sector of the building industry working to promote buildings that are environmentally  responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. How can cool metal roofing qualify in LEED? Cool metal roofing can qualify for 1 point within LEED-NC Version 2.2, Sustainable Sites Credit 7.2, Heat Island Effect: Roofing by using roofing materials that have an Solar Reflective Index (SRI) rating minimum of 78 for low sloped roofs (≤ 2:12) or a minimum of 29 for steep slope (> 2:12). To see if your cool metal roofing product can achieve the SRI minimum number, visit the LBNL SRI Calculator. You’ll need to know the Solar Reflectance and Thermal Remittance number to obtain the SRI value. Download SRI calculator . Click to update SRI
