Target the Roof to Meet Energy Code

Technical guideline for roof assemblies examples how to meet energy code requirements

 

Effective Roof Assemblies are vital for energy conservation, a key element of the International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1. A new guideline details how to meet code requirements.

Is your building losing energy?  Buildings can lose significant energy through ineffective roofing.

The International Code Council (ICC) and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) aim to cut down on that loss with a new technical guideline on energy code requirements for roof assemblies.

The step-by-step guide covers the requirements of both the 2009 and 2012 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), as well as the 2007 and 2010 editions of ASHRAE 90.1 referenced in the IECC, which is recognized by the Department of Energy for meeting the agency’s energy conservation goals.

Named Guidelines for Complying with Energy Code Requirements for Roof Assemblies, it maintains a major focus on effective roof construction, a critical element of energy conservation.
