New Marley white paper supports specifiers to design out risk in pitched roofs

< 1 min

Marley has launched an in-depth white paper examining the critical factors associated with pitched roof design, installation, and ongoing liability.

Design Risk & Liability—Designing Out Risk in Pitched Roofs’ provides specifiers with a comprehensive overview of the main considerations when designing and installing high-performing and safe pitched roof solutions.

The new white paper illustrates the primary areas of risk and liability that face specifiers and housebuilders, as well as highlighting the potential risks surrounding individual component selection versus the advantages of a full roof specification process.

The free-to-download white paper makes for essential reading for those involved in roofing specification, ensuring they can deliver the most effective design and installation processes.
The main sections of the white paper cover the following:

  • Role of a pitched roof and pitched roof assembly.
  • The potential risks of poor compatibility or installation.
  • Who is liable if problems occur?
  • Considerations around individual components versus full roof system.
  • Designing out risk through a system approach.
Design Risk and Liability—Designing Out Risk in Pitched Roofs’ can be downloaded from the Marley website.

In an era of changing regulations including energy efficiency performance and safety, it is vital that those designing, specifying, and installing roofing solutions fully understand not only the technical aspects but also where potential risks are and where liabilities fall.

This new white paper addresses the main considerations, supporting specifiers to attain a better all-round understanding of the considerations involved in the delivery of a successful pitched roofing solution.
