From the Back Cover:

THE PREMIER GUIDE TO COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL ROOFS

For decades, this manual has been the most widely respected guide to designing and specifying low-slope roof systems. It remains unique -- the only working handbook that treats all topics in roof design, from fundamentals to roof systems and materials options.

This fourth edition covers major advances in design and materials, as well as changes in building codes. It gets you up to speed on roof system performance, emerging materials, drainage, wind uplift, vapor control, fire resistance, thermal insulation, reroofing, and much more. You'll even find field-tested solutions for such problems as lap-seam failures, membrane shrinkage, and fastener backout. Covering all major types of flat, multi-ply, low-slope roofing systems for commercial and industrial facilities, this definitive text also updates you on new procedures in inspection and maintenance.

For architects, roof designers, roof consultants, contractors, spec writers, attorneys, materials manufacturers -- anyone who needs authoritative, up-to-date information on all aspects of roof technology -- the Manual of Low-Slope Roof Systems dominates the field.
