Since 2007, Carlisle has used its RoofSense program to help specifiers, building owners and roofing professionals optimize their roof systems by improving ROI and operating efficiency.
RoofSense is a web-based lifecycle analysis program that enables users to calculate the potential energy savings that can be realized from an energy-efficient roof design for the next 10, 20, or 30 years. RoofSense reports can demonstrate how building owners can potentially save thousands in energy and maintenance costs while improving the overall efficiency of their properties.
RoofSense is designed to provide a simple, efficient and accurate assessment of a building’s project energy costs based on both its location and the materials used in its roof construction. All data that is compiled in the RoofSense program is gathered from independent sources, such as the United States Department of Energy and the building owner’s utility bills, ensuring premium, non-biased accuracy. With RoofSense, building owners can compare and contrast the energy savings of a wide variety of roofing systems, including membranes and insulation, for project locations in every zip code in the United States. RoofSense can calculate the optimal R-value and membrane color based on location and energy costs, and even calculates the owner’s overall return on investment related to roof expenditures.
Optimizing energy is a priority for building owners and the design community. Carlisle’s RoofSense program is a resource that can show how additional insulation or a higher grade roof system can provide operating cost savings. When these long-term financial cost benefits are considered, a roof system with enhanced performance makes sense.
As always, if you have any questions or you would like to discuss a project where RoofSense may help determine your specification approach, please contact your local Carlisle rep to discuss in further detail.
