RoofPoint is a sustainability guideline developed exclusively for roofing systems. It is similar to other familiar building rating systems such as the U.S. Green Build Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, but it embraces important differences that offer unique value to building owners and the green-building community.
RoofPoint evaluates a roof system in five categories: energy management, materials management, water management, durability/life cycle management, and innovation.
Since the beginning of 2011, RoofPoint projects have been certified in over 30 U.S. states as well as Canada and Mexico.
The January 2012 issue of Interface provides a complete overview of the program as well as the RoofPoint guideline, which is a comprehensive checklist of all critical environmental aspects of modern roofing systems.
