This year, ROOFTech 2013 focused on on green roof strategies including the following:
White Roofs reflect summer sunshine reducing heat loads on individual buildings and decrease the heating urban heat island effects for entire regional areas
Green Roofs, live vegetated roofs to insulate traditional roofs and add a touch of nature to individual buildings and our urban cores
ROOFTech is sponsored by many of Canada’s leading roofing associations including:
Canadian Roof Contractors Association
Ontario Roof Contractors Association
