Welcome to the RCABC RoofStar Roofing Practices Manual (RPM)

This is the official version of the Roofing Practices Manual and supersedes all other printed versions which may be in circulation.

The Roofing Practices Manual is the official guide for RCABC Members, Accepted Inspectors, designers, architects and specification writers designing or applying roofing and waterproofing systems, and describes the RoofStar Guarantee Standards, Guiding Principles and Recommended Practices necessary to qualify for a RoofStar Guarantee. The RPM meets or exceeds the current national and provincial standards for construction and wind uplift design resistance. See the Table of Contents below, or use any of the following quick links:
