Course: What Makes a Thermoplastic Roof Sustainable Course#: SIK107

Length: 1 hour

Learning Units: 1.0 LU/HSW (Health, Safety and Welfare)

Description: “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".

Learning Objectives: 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).

 A knowledge of the natural fire resistant 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.
