The Flexible Roof Facility (FRF) is a test facility in Cocoa, Florida designed to evaluate five roofing systems at a time against a control roof with black shingles and vented attic (Figure E-1). Since 1989 the testing has evaluated how roofing systems impact summer residential cooling energy use and peak demand. In the summer of 2004, the following roofing systems were tested. Materials tested were: Galvalume® unfinished (unpainted) 5-vee metal with vented attic (3rd year of exposure), galvanized unfinished 5-vee metal with vented attic (3rd year of exposure, black shingles with standard attic ventilation (Control Test Cell), white standing seam metal with vented attic (3rd year of exposure after cleaning).
