Where do roofs typically fail? How can these failures be reliably prevented? This session is an engaging discussion of key roofing details, with over 100 illustrations of failures and the details that stop them. For steep roofs, you’ll see: sidewall connection details, edge details, how to flash chimneys, key details for different roofing materials. For "flat" low-slope roofs, we'll show: drains that don’t leak, connections to walls and other roofs, edge details, material choices, how to test low-slope roofs. From our in-company training, over 100 photos of issues & solutions.
By attending this session, attendees will:
Be familiar with construction details for underlayment, flashing, and wall connections which are less likely to leak
Understand the merits of various types of roofing material (and what to watch out for with each)
See low‐slope details for drains, edges, scuppers, and skylights which are more reliable
