Roofing Industry Background
Through the cooperation of several related roofing contractor and design associations, the industry provides standards for single-ply roofing construction. The American National Standard Institute (ANSI) and the Single-Ply Roofing Industry (SPRI) have been instrumental in establishing standards for roofing material design and installation. . . .
Limiting Risk to Litigation
A roof edge system must act as a water seal at the edge by protecting the membrane from pulling free under high winds or repeated seasonal wind cycles. If the edge leaks or blows off, damage to the roof membrane, insulation and/or the structural decking can occur. . .
