9/m2 are expected also to be cost-effective in climate zone 1. Therefore, the 2005 California Title 24 Standards adopted a cool-roof prescriptive requirement in all California climate zones for nonresidential buildings with low-sloped roofs. Non-residential buildings with low-sloped roofs that do not meet this new prescriptive requirement may still achieve performance compliance. Proposed prescriptive requirements for steep-sloped non-residential roofs, steep-sloped residential roofs and low-sloped residential roofs (2008) In 2005, the Berkeley Lab Heat Island Group began to investigate the merits of adding to the 2008 Title 24 Standards prescriptive requirements for the use of cool roofs on all other types of buildings, including non-residential buildings with steep-sloped roofs, residential buildings with steep-sloped roofs and residential buildings with low-sloped roofs.
