Roofing/Waterproofing Library

The Roofing/Waterproofing Library streamlines your workload with ready access to over 115 MasterSpec® sections focusing on low and steep-slope roofing and reroofing, metal roofing, and green roofing as well as waterproofing of vulnerable foundation walls and plaza decks.

Quickly access well-researched, current, tautly written, and coordinated specification language for:

  • Establishing product and material quality levels
  • Making product selections
  • Selecting installation requirements
  • Documenting warranty expectations
