Low Slope Roofing Volume 2

Format: Book
CE Info: Ineligible
Contact Info: Customer Service (


"To provide high-quality design service to clients, someone in the architect's office should possess a general knowledge of all low-slope roof system options and roof design criteria."
—from the monograph

To select the most appropriate roof system for a project, an architect should have at least a general understanding of available membrane options. And Low-Slope Roofing II, the companion monograph to Low-Slope Roofing I, was written precisely with this objective in mind.

Low-Slope Roofing II received the Construction Specifications Institute's Publications Commendation, Special Publication in April 2003.


  1. LSR II describes unique alternatives to traditional built-up roofing (BUR), including modified bitumen, single-ply, sprayed polyurethane foam, metal, and liquid applied systems.
  2. Additional chapters look at re-roofing, sustainable considerations, construction contract administration, and warranty issues related to roofing projects.
  3. A detailed glossary of terms, bibliography, and index are provided.


Thomas Lee Smith, AIA, RRC, is president of TLSmith Consulting Inc., in Rockton, IL, and specializes in architectural technology and research, with an emphasis on roof technology.
