The goal of tapered roof insulation systems is to reduce or eliminate the amount of standing water on the membrane when the roof deck does not provide adequate slope. Ponding water can not only have an adverse effect on the waterproofing membrane but can add unwanted weight to the structural deck and can make routine maintenance more difficult and in some cases more dangerous. A properly designed tapered roof insulation system not only provides the positive drainage needed but also helps extend the life of the roof membrane.
The provision of a fall within a warm deck flat roof is normally achieved in one of three ways; tapered insulation, utilising timber firings under a plywood base or by laying a screed to falls.
Independent studies have assessed both the cost and speed of each type of installation.
Tapered insulation proves to be:
Additionally with tapered insulation the required fall can be achieved and the necessary thermal insulation is provided in ‘one-go’.
