This program is designed to provide an overview of Bituminous Membrane roofing systems. Participants will review what qualifies as a low slope roof assembly and compare self-adhering to heat activated assemblies. Further discussions will introduce concepts such as sustainable design, the heat island effect, cool roofs, and bituminous membrane. Along with these discussions, participants will be able to recognize LEED categories and credits they may obtain.


#Define what qualifies as a low slope roof assembly and its components.
#Identify LEED categories and the points system associated with sustainable roofing assemblies.
#Review sustainable design concepts, the Green Rating systems, and Green Code
#Compare how a temperature trend in dark roofs and non-reflective surfaces contributes to release heat absorbed from sunlight into the surrounding atmosphere creating a heat island effect.
#Examine how cool roofs reflect and emit solar radiation back to the sky instead of thermal energy into the building
#Describe the principle factors that need to be considered in the design of a self-adhering roofing system
#Describe the key considerations needed for the successful installation of a self-adhering roofing system
#Describe how Cool Roof systems impact ENERGY STAR, LEED and California Energy Commission Title 24
#Describe how self-adhering roofing systems and low slope roofs can contribute to sustainable design
