    I would like to let AIA members know about a new website I have developed at Roofing Product Search Tool that includes data on all roofing products available in the USA. It includes a unique attribute search that allows users to find all products meeting specific performance requirements, such as roof slope, maximum weight, fire rating, wind uplift performance, reflectivity, and so forth. It also offers searches by keyword, manufacturer, brand name, and MasterFormat number. Searches are free, and there is no registration or login required.

    This is going to be a fantastic resource, and I predict it will make a very big impact on the profession and the entire construction industry. I remember when you described this concept to me a few years ago, and I am tremendously impressed that it is coming to fruition. It is an ambitious project, but I know you have a serious plan to roll it out. I am very proud of you as a Tulane School of Architecture alumnus - and happy for you as a friend.

    Good luck and best wishes for continued success.
