At the time of writing, California is considering including in its 2008 Title 24 Standards a prescriptive cool-roof requirement in all climate zones for non-residential buildings with steep-sloped roofs. Low-sloped roofs on residential buildings Berkeley Lab developed a residential prototype building that prescriptively complies with the 2005 Title 24 Standards. 55) versions of a low-sloped (horizontal) built-up roof. 10 Source: original material for this chapter usually installed in houses with low-sloped roofs (in climates zones where radiant barriers are prescriptively required, a house without a radiant barrier would have to demonstrate performance compliance).
