In the design of a new building, many designers view the roof as just another exterior component. Roof design can be an afterthought. What is often overlooked is that the roof is one of the largest exterior components and maintenance costs are typically 60+ percent of the building's lifetime maintenance budget. The roof serves as an important protective barrier against rain, snow, sunlight, wind, extreme temperature, and water penetration. When designing for long-term performance, many factors must be considered together to create an environment with straightforward details and systems that a building owner can manage with relative ease.
