Water is heavy and can be destructive. Buildings typically don’t like unnecessary weight. Roofs don’t like ponding water. Water will take the path of least resistance, so that means slope!
Tapered insulation typically consists of polyisocyanurate or expanded polystyrene insulation and can be installed under your new roof membrane to slope and divert water directly to drainage assemblies. Proper slope and drainage prevent unnecessary water weight from sitting on top of your building and provide fewer chances for water to attack your new roof. Whether it’s a fully tapered insulation assembly on a roof deck with no slope, tapered insulation crickets on a roof deck with a structural slope, or a combination of the two, Cole Roofing can install a tapered insulation configuration to meet your needs.
