'''Low Slope Membrane Roofs''' include weatherproof membrane types of roof systems installed on slopes at or less than 3:12 (1:4, or 14 degrees).  In some instances, roof systems designed for low-slope applications may be used on roofs with a slope greater than 3:12.  Conversely, some steep-slope roof materials may be used on roofs with slopes less than 3:12.  Consult the '''''RoofStar Guarantee Standards''''' for Guarantee requirements, Guiding Principles and Recommendations in any application (click '''''expand''''' to read more).

'''Waterproofing Systems (Roofs)''' include membrane roofs and liquid-applied roof systems specifically accepted for use in the '''''RoofStar Guarantee Program'''''.  These systems (all roof components, but excluding the supporting deck structure) may be installed on a variety of sloped surfaces, but typically are installed on roofs sloped less than 1:4 (3" in 12").

'''Low Slope Membrane Roofs''' employ a weatherproof covering or membrane that keeps water from entering a building.  These membranes may be comprised of one or more layers.  They include Built-up Roofs (BUR), which utilize multiple layers of felt or modified bituminous membranes laminated or bonded together with hot bitumen and coated on top with small rock (these are commonly referred to as 'tar and gravel roofs').

A '''Roof Assembly''' (different from a ''roof system'') includes the supporting roof deck, the roof covering and any other components, including insulation (cf. ASTM D6630 – 08).

Waterproofing Systems (Roofs) include membrane roofs and liquid-applied roof systems specifically accepted for use in the RoofStar Guarantee Program. These systems (all roof components, but excluding the supporting deck structure) may be installed on a variety of sloped surfaces, but typically are installed on roofs sloped less than 1:4 (3" in 12"). (click expand to read more).

Waterproofing Systems employ a waterproof covering that keeps water from entering a building. These membranes may be comprised of one or more layers. They include Built-up Roofs (BUR), which utilize multiple layers of felt or modified bituminous membranes laminated or bonded together with hot bitumen and coated on top with small rock (these are commonly referred to as 'tar and gravel roofs'). Some systems perform better under hydrostatic pressures than do others, and the Design Authority should pay attention to these differences.

The RoofStar Guarantee Standards for Waterproofing Systems include the following:

  • SBS-modified Bitumen Membrane Systems
  • EPDM (Thermoset Membrane) Systems
  • TPO (Thermoplastic Membranes) Systems
  • PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Systems
  • Hot-applied Rubberized Asphalt Systems (under development)
  • PMMA Liquid Membrane Systems (under development)
  • Built-Up Roofs (BUR)


See Water-shedding Systems or Waterproofing Plazas, Promenades and Terraces for other RoofStar Guarantee Standards, or return to the Home Page.
