Building the roof

The roof is seen more from the sky than the ground, but it is one of the more important parts of the building. The roof not only protects the inside of the building from the weather but it also helps to control the amount of heat that is let back into the atmosphere. The butterfly part of the roof is made from TPO – Thermoplastic Polyolefin. This is white and is a LEED product. As a LEED product, it will help to prevent the heat from going back into the surrounding air. The flat parts of the roof are made from EPDM – Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer. Or as I was told–rubber!

I do not have an updated picture from the air to show you how the complete roof appears so I included an architectural rendering. Remember the flat part of our roof will not be white; only the butterfly section.
