The NRCA Roofing Manual: Architectural Metal Flashing, Condensation Control and Reroofing — 2010 contains information about the design, materials and installation techniques applicable to architectural sheet-metal components and provides background information regarding moisture issues in buildings, such as ventilation for steep-slope roof assemblies and condensation control for low-slope roof systems. Also addressed are considerations and guidelines for projects involving tearing off, re-cover and replacement of existing roof systems.
New and current NRCA members who have paid their 2010 membership dues will receive one complimentary copy of the manual; it is sent to the voting representative.
