Forty-three states and most U.S. jurisdictions have adopted regulations for energy-efficient construction of commercial buildings. These regulations usually include provisions related to low-slope roof assemblies— buildings whose roofs slope less than two units vertical in 12 units horizontal (2:12). This course highlights commonly adopted energy-code provisions for commercial low-slope roof assembles and examines the process of how such provisions are adopted.
