The Rehab Guide Volume 3: Roofs

advice, guidance, support, results

March 1999, 81 pages

The Rehab Guides are a series of nine guidebooks to inform the design and construction industry of state-of-the-art materials and innovative practices in housing rehabilitation. The Rehab Guides focus on building technology, materials, components, and techniques rather than projects such as adding a new room. Each volume will feature breakthrough materials, labor-saving tools, and cost-cutting practices. Each volume in the series covers a distinct element of housing rehabilitation.

Entitled The Rehab Guide: Roofs, the third volume, covers the major roofing systems as well as protective strategies, energy and air filtration issues, roofing materials, and gutters and downspouts. It uses drawings and photographs to supplement written descriptions of several components of the rehabilitation of roofs, including the following items:

  • Roof design
  • Sheathing and flashing
  • Underlayments and moisture barriers
  • Wood shingles and shakes and asphalt shingles
  • Low-slope and metal roofing
  • Slate
  • Clay, concrete, fiber-cement, and composite tile
  • Gutter and leader systems
