Go with the Flow: Tapered Insulation Fundamentals
A majority of buildings in commercial roofing are designed to have minimal roof slopes or roofs that are even built flat. This introduces a myriad of service life issues if bulk water is not directed off of the roof. Tapered insulation systems add positive drainage to manage water flow, prevent water infiltration, as well as insulate buildings at the roof level. Join our team and learn how tapered insulation systems add positive drainage to manage water flow, prevent water infiltration, as well as insulate buildings at the roof level.
