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:

NOTICE to Readers: This online presentation of the Roofing Practices Manual is a restructuring of its original format. All updates to the older version of this Manual have been incorporated into the present structure. Yellow highlighted text indicates a change to the Manual within the past 12 months. Watch for changes to either or both Accepted Materials and RoofStar Guarantee Standards. Highlighting remains in effect for 365 days. Consult the Technical Updates for a list of changes since 2010.

Last Update: February 27, 2020 (see Technical Updates for details)
