In February 2010, The Center for Environmental Innovation unveiled RoofPoint™ to a select group of roofing industry stakeholders at the International Roofing Expo.

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.

  1. RoofPoint is going to be yet another way to ensure the roofing materials and processes we are using are sustainable and environmentally friendly. It sounds great and I can’t wait to start applying it to MCAS Roofing & Contracting Inc’s roofing.

  2. Impressive! I haven’t used Roofpoint in any project yet but I guess I would try it sooner or later in my incoming projects. I guess this is a good guideline to be considered before building a rooftop in every houses or buildings. Thanks for this information.

  3. RoofPoint – way to take the lead in sustainable roofing! This is great for the roofing industry while allowing building owners take part in being environmentally responsible. Looking forward to the possibility of using RoofPoint in upcoming projects!
