The demand for rooftop areas is growing, as are the materials required to make the overall roofing system as efficient and sustainable as possible. Protected Roof Membrane Assemblies (PRMAs) and vegetative roofs are two recent developments that impose high demands on the components under the surface, from waterproofing to insulation and everything in between.
In a special live webinar on December 9 at 2 p.m., Roofing Contractor and Owens Corning will partner together to assist contractors examine the energy-saving benefits and high-performance qualities of PRMA components.
Join Tiffany Coppock, an Owens Corning commercial building systems specialist, as she delves into the time-saving and ecologically beneficial features of this revolutionary breakthrough. She discusses the influence of Owens Corning’s FOAMULAR-NGX, which was introduced earlier this year, on the commercial roofing industry in this video.
Coppock will also outline the building code/performance requirements and best specification procedures for this and other products to fulfill fire, wind, thermal, and moisture performance throughout the webinar.
“We’ll speak about protective membrane assemblies… and we’ll go into some of the nuances on how to use them to their full potential,” Coppock added.
Participants will also have the opportunity to work on the following learning objectives:
Determine the differences in physical properties of XPS, EPS, and Polyiso foam plastic insulation.
Recognize the special needs of PRMAs and Vegetative Roof Assemblies (VRAs).
Recognize the most important building code requirements for PRMAs and VRAs.
Identify optimum installation procedures for the PRMA roof type to prevent frequent problems during design, approval, installation, and maintenance.
