Defining a Sustainable Roof
Many of us selecting, designing, manufacturing or installing a roof system are striving to conform to the sustainability ideal. Forging our way, we often find ourselves entangled in a debate. In roofing, what is sustainable? Are we achieving it if we paint our black roofs white to save energy? Surely we are if our roof is reflective. Are our roofs sustainable if we plant landscaped gardens above them and create space on them for the public to play? How about if our products endure rooftop harassment indefinitely? Or, are we only really achieving sustainability if we can tear off our old roofs, recycle and transform them into new roofing products like walkways, tiles or even new roofing membranes?
