Roofs as Sustainable Space Natural light creates a pleasant space for occupants and requires less energy for lighting. Istockphoto.com®
Energy Star Roof Systems Energy collected from the sun can be used in the structure. Reflective roofs reduce cooling energy costs.
Roof Pitch Roof pitch determined by rise/run Run 12 in. Rise 7 in. Example: A 7/12 (pronounced seven twelve) pitch means that the roof rises 7 in. for every 12 in. horizontally.
Roof Trusses A roof truss is a simple assembly of members forming a rigid framework of triangular shapes. Courtesy Leslie Eaves Courtesy Isle of Palms, SC Recreation Department
