A building’s roofing system is its first line of defense against harsh weather conditions. All components from the roof deck up work together to deliver a quality, dependable system. While the membrane is the most visible aspect of the roofing system, products installed below affect its strength and endurance. Insulation and cover boards contribute to the overall roof performance and offer individual benefits as well.
