WHAT MAKES A THERMOPLASTIC ROOF SUSTAINABLE
In a time when words like "Green", "Sustainable", "Environmentally Friendly" and "All Natural" are being used to describe every product you buy; it is difficult to know exactly what you should be looking for when making a purchase....and roofing is no exception. What makes a thermoplastic roof sustainable is an in-depth look at what makes a roofing system really sustainable and how to look past all the "Green Washing"

The presentation is AIA CES approved and qualifies for one learning unit.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to identify key sustainability attributes of roofing systems such as:
The importance of proven performance and membrane durability (the longer the roofing system lasts, the less roofing systems end up in a landfill)
Understanding the difference between post-industrial, pre-consumer and post-consumer recycling and the benefits of choosing a product that recycles post-consumer back into new membrane (full circle recycling).
Knowledge of the natural fire resistance properties of some roofing membranes and a review of how different fire resistant roofing membranes perform when actually on fire.
An understanding of the term "life-cycle" and how specifying a roofing system that has a low impact on life-cycle is beneficial not only for environment, but an owner's wallet.
