Residential (steep slope) data:

Numbers must trend downward if we are to make advances in reducing urban heat island effect.

The world standard on "Heat Island Effect" is Lrawrence Berkeley National Laboratories (Dr. Ronnen Levinson, Director):

In conjunction, I will also guide you to the presentation papers of the wonderful Dr. Art Rosenfeld:


Very fine examples of eco-friendly steep slope roof systems exist (metal and tile), but they have an expensive initial installed cost.

If we are to be successful in reducing urban heat island effect, we must impart the technology used in commercial low slope roof systems, at a VALUE.

Residential neglect:

The RoofPoint program from the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing (Center) is a voluntary, consensus-based green rating system developed to help building owners and designers select non-residential roof systems based on long-term energy and environmental benefits.


RoofPoint serves as a simple, transparent and professional measure to validate that new and replacement roof systems are designed, installed and maintained in accordance with the best sustainable practices available today.

Exclude steep slope roofing.  Why is that?

NORTH AMERICAN COMMERCIAL ROOFING MARKET VALUE, 2007-2014
($ BILLIONS)




REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

  • The total value of the North American commercial roofing market is estimated at over $3.2 billion in 2009. This figure is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.7% to reach $5.9 billion in 2014.
  • Hot BUR and green roofing products are expected to have the highest compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) of 24.5% each. Hot BUR will increase in value from $189 million in 2009 to $564 million in 2014. Green roofing will increase from $28 million in 2009 to $83 million in 2014.
  • SPF roofing will have the highest value of nearly $1.1 billion in 2014, from $420 million in 2009, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.6%.

You NEVER want an inscrease in asphaltic roofing products.


And from the fine people at Firestone who were kind enough to furnish this report:


Reject negativity in all forms, and  always  remember to keep looking "UP".
