CS-2009 SSc7.2: Heat Island Effect—Roof
Project location: Sweden
May 20, 2015
4 thumbs up
The roof of our renovation project has is made of old sheet metal, which we do not know the SRI of. The color is green, and the SRI are probably relatively high, is there any way for getting that approved without testing the SRI?

Unfortunately, you will need the manufacturer data sheets or testing protocols showing the SRI to document compliance. Previous guidance has suggested that the Fraunhofer Institut" in Stuttgart, Germany can do SRI testing with a product sample. Documentation must be translated into English. http://www.igb.fraunhofer.de/en.html

We don't have enough SRI-compliant roofing to earn the credit, but we have a lot of relatively high-SRI roofing (SRI 70). Is there any way to earn the credit?
We don't know the SRI value of some roofing materials we are using. What should we do?
What do I do about roof area covered by solar panels, skylights, space for occupants, helipads, etc.?
Speaking of appurtenances, there is a rooftop pool. Should that be included? Do I need to figure out the SRI value of water?
Do balconies and terraces need to be counted towards the roof square footage?
How does one calculate the square footage of a pitched roof?
What type of ongoing maintenance of the roof is required?
