Roofing: Design Criteria, Options, Selection by R. D. Herbert

Newly developed roofing systems and materials offer important advantages and economies over traditional types of roof construction. In actual practice, however, the industry has experienced high rates of failure when the new approaches are used. R.S. Means' latest book, Roofing: Design, Criteria, Options, Selection, does an admirable job of clearing away the mysteries, of designing and installing roofing using both new and traditional methods.

While the book helps sort through hundreds of roofing products and systems, you'll discover that failures are most often connected to miscues in design and installation procedures rather than product defects.

To demonstrate, the book focuses on detailed discussions of correctly matching designs to the appropriate roofing systems, with close attention to the selection of decks, insulation, drainage, flashing, and roofing materials. All types of roofing are covered . . . built-up, single-ply, metal, formed-in-place, slate, tile, shingles and shakes, as well as all types of seals and accessories.

Published/Edition: November 1990. ISBN/Book No.: 0876291043
