A roof is a building’s most important asset. Roofs once served the sole purpose of protecting a building, its contents and the people inside. Today, roofs can conserve energy, capture sunlight, benefit the environment and, ultimately, save money.
Here's how to make the most of your capital and operating dollars.
1. Review local and national building codes. What are the R-values (measure of thermal insulation) and wind-uplift requirements that need to be considered?
2. Your roofing contractor can provide the criteria for roof system assemblies that your insurance carrier will need to determine if the roof replacement system that you are considering meets their insurance requirements.
