Free Program on Future of Energy Efficient RoofingJan Horne
Green Building Program presents “Beyond Reflectivity: The Future of Energy Efficient Roofing”
Are you considering a new roof in the not too distant future? Learn about your options for durability, environmental performance and curb appeal at a free Green Building Program Thursday, April 7. It will be at 7 p.m. at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road.
More than 43 percent of all electricity consumed in Valley homes is used for air conditioning. Roofs that reflect the desert sun’s heat back into space and help keep building interiors comfortable offer attractive savings on energy costs for air conditioning. “Cool” roofs also reduce ambient air temperature, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
At the program, you’ll find out about the world of energy efficient roofing products and the pros and cons of using reflective roofing surfaces, ventilation, insulative materials and innovative roofing products.
Join Tyler Allwood as he shares his experience with energy efficiency, performance and durability of roofing products in our harsh desert environment. Allwood is the national director of Technical Services and Systems for Eagle Roofing Products, the largest USA owned concrete roof tile manufacturer. He leads the department that is responsible for all of Eagle’s energy code approvals and product innovation. A graduate of Boston College, Tyler’s roofing experience spans two decades and includes 10 years as vice president of a large roofing company. Additionally, Allwood has served in leadership roles in several roofing trade organizations.
