BTA is committed to using environmentally friendly (green) roofing technology and to working to continually provide innovative sustainable roofing solutions. Our energy-efficient approach to roof management ensures you are well positioned for today's ever-growing energy landscape needs.

Environmental consciousness is influencing the roofing industry to research and develop new eco-friendly roofing technologies that are capable of reducing the total costs of roofing applications both for the roof itself and other interrelated cost savings like reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling. Green (vegetative) roofs, solar roofs, and cool (white) roofs, are all examples of environmentally friendly roofing options that function to reduce energy consumption.

  • Cool Roofs
  • Solar Roofs
  • Green Roofs
  • White Roofs
  • Examples of eco-friendly and energy-efficient BTA recommended roofing practices include:
  • Double-layer insulation to minimize energy-losing thermal transfer between roofing joints.
  • Adhering, rather than mechanically fastening, the upper layer to prevent thermal transfer from metal fasteners.
  • The use of polyisocyanurate as primary insulation provides the most thermally efficient insulation available (6.00 R/inch) and the best long-term thermal resistance (LTTR).
