Green Article on Making your roofing methods Greener! #Green #Building #Constr…

Green from the Ground Up Best Practices Use raised-heal trusses. If framing the room with dimensional lumber, install a rafter plate to allow sufficient insulation at the eaves. In a cooling climate, use radiant-barrier roof sheathing. If ductwork runs through the attic, treat the attic as conditioned space by insulating both the rafters and the ceiling. Choose the most durable roofing material available that's appropriate to the climate. Avoid copper and galvanized metal roofing as well as inexpensive asphalt shingles. In cold-weater regions, protect the lower 3ft. of the roof and valleys with a self-adhering bituminous membrane. Install an effective air barrier between any ceiling and unconditioned attic. Seal any penetrations.
