NRCA does metal again

The latest volume in The NRCA Roofing Manual series focuses on metal


In January, NRCA published The NRCA Roofing Manual: Metal Panel and SPF Roof Systems—2016, which provides up-to-date NRCA best practices applicable to the design and installation of metal panel and spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roof systems. This volume replaces The NRCA Roofing Manual: Metal Panel and SPF Roof Systems—2012 in The NRCA Roofing Manual series.

The current volumes in The NRCA Roofing Manual include The NRCA Roofing Manual: Steep-slope Roof Systems—2013; The NRCA Roofing Manual: Architectural Metal Flashing, Condensation and Air Leakage Control, and Reroofing—2014 (an update was issued in July); The NRCA Roofing Manual: Membrane Roof Systems—2015 (an update was issued in July); and The NRCA Roofing Manual: Metal Panel and SPF Roof Systems—2016.

This article addresses the Metal Panel Roof Systems section of The NRCA Roofing Manual: Metal Panel and SPF Roof Systems—2016. For a discussion about the updated SPF Roof Systems section, see "Spotlight on SPF," January issue.
