Working in a perfect environment, a facility manager (FM) would implement a sustainable roof program with the goal of achieving lowest cost of ownership while extending asset life.

Meanwhile, reduced risk to personnel and property damage, fewer materials entering landfills, extended roof replacement cycles, and fewer headaches associated with emergency repairs are additional benefits of a sustainable roofing program.
