CCHRC members and sponsors provide vital, sustaining support for our mission to promote and advance healthy, durable, and sustainable shelter for cold climates. Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
Of all the building components, the roof system faces some of the most severe challenges. In cold climates, a roof must be properly sized, well sealed, energy efficient, and perform reliably under the extremes of each season.
The Cold Climate Housing Research Center provides extensive information on roof systems for structures in the Circumpolar north.
