Low Slope Roofing Volume 1

"Roofing may be one of the least rewarding aspects of an architect's design program, but it deserves undivided attention or else it can become the most conspicuous of the program's shortcomings."
—Peter Green

Low-Slope Roofing I is written to help practitioners become more familiar with roofing terminology and concepts and more skilled in designing built-up roofing (BUR) systems.


  1. The monograph provides a comprehensive overview of BUR, a type of low-slope roofing system specified on about 35 percent of new buildings in the United States.
  2. The information presented is relevant to new, so-called hybrid systems—those comprising multiple plies of felts and bitumen covered by a modified bitumen cap sheet.
  3. The entire roof assembly—roof deck, vapor retarder, insulation, and membrane—is discussed.
  4. Specific topics include code requirements, design considerations, material options, and installation techniques.
