This course will discuss the challenges of current lows-slope roofing applications and further explore the properties of insulation types and performance characteristics under different operating temperatures. Participants will learn of an alternative insulation selection strategy using a hybrid approach combining both polyisocyanurate and mineral wool. Dimensional stability and constructability of the hybrid system will be explored in addition to the implications of roofing color and energy transfer through the insulation assembly.
