The demand on rooftop spaces continues to evolve, as do the materials needed to keep the entire roofing system as sustainable and efficient as possible. Among the latest trends are Protected Roof Membrane Assemblies (PRMAs) and vegetative roofs, which in particular place extreme requirements on the components below the surface from waterproofing to insulation and everything in between. 

Roofing Contractor and Owens Corning are teaming up to help contractors explore the energy-saving benefits and high-performance attributes of PRMA components in a special live webinar at 2 p.m. Dec. 9.

Join Tiffany Coppock, commercial building systems specialist with Owens Corning, as she breaks down the time-saving and environmentally-friendly aspects of this new innovation. In this video, she talks about the introduction of Owens Corning’s FOAMULAR-NGX earlier this year and its impact on the commercial roofing space

During the webinar, Coppock will also define the building code/performance standards and best specification practices to meet fire, wind, thermal, and moisture performance for this and other products. 

“We're going to talk about protective membrane assemblies … and we're going to get into some of the details on how to use them to the best of their ability,” Coppock said. 

Attendees will also get a chance to tackle the following learning objectives:

  • Identify physical property difference between XPS, EPS, and Polyiso foam plastic insulation.
  • Understand unique requirements of PRMAs and Vegetative Roof Assemblies (VRAs).
  • Understand key building code requirements for PRMAs and VRAs.
  • Identify best installation practices to avoid common pitfalls during design, approval, installation, and maintenance of the PRMA roof type.
