Marley launches new comprehensive roof systems specification guide

16 Dec 2020

As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting architects and specifiers, Marley has launched its updated Roof Systems Specification Guide. 

Developed to help construction professionals design and specify a complete pitched roof system in accordance with the latest regulations, standards and best practice, the comprehensive 200-page guide is available in both hard copy and digital formats.

Covering more roofing elements than ever before, from battens, ventilation, underlay, and dry fix, to clay and concrete tiles to timber shingles and shakes, the guide outlines important design considerations such as management of condensation, ventilation and weather resistance. 

For the first time, the Roof Systems Specification Guide also features an image gallery at the beginning to showcase some of the latest and most inspirational roofing projects using Marley’s solutions. 

And, as more and more building projects see sustainability brought to the fore, readers also have access to information on measuring success and assessing the sustainability of buildings.  

Paul Marshall, Marketing Communications Manager at Marley, said: “The Roof Systems Specification Guide is a well-regarded tool amongst specifiers and, to date has already supported 1,000’s of  architects and specifiers.  With the most comprehensive roof system on the market, this new edition covers even more roofing elements, as well as containing all the information needed to design and specify a complete roof system.

“We understand the pressures specification teams face when it comes to challenging roofing projects, such as tight budgets, changing regulations and complicated supply chains. We also understand our important role as a manufacturer in supporting the industry and hope our specification guide will be a valuable resource to help roofing aspirations come to life.”
