Building Enclosure Council

Low-Slope Roofing in the Northeast

In New England, where a large number of physical forces act on the roof assembly and the consequences of even a small deficiency can be severe, the benefit of hearing from experts with a diversity of professional backgrounds will be the purpose of this BEC meeting. In this panel discussion we will delve into the central issues of selecting the best roof membrane for a project in this climate. The material characteristics of the most commonly specified membranes will be discussed as well as their long-term performance. We will also cover the topics of warranties, methods of attachment, insulation types, and how to avoid condensation; all in terms of best practices and failure modes observed in the field. All materials and products discussed will be rooted in an understanding of the behavior of the complete assembly with respect to UV exposure, temperature change, moisture vapor drive, interior/exterior air pressures, and means and methods of construction.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
