Roofing surface must be free of ice, water, or snow, prior to and during the roofing project. The building owner or owner's representative is responsible for ensuring that wet or damaged substrate has been removed in a re-roofing application.
4.
Decking materials must be dimensionally stable prior to installing the tiles. If the materials are not dry, manufacturer recommends installing the underlayment and allowing the roof to dry out before installing tiles.
B.
If preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of deviations from manufacturer's recommended installation tolerances and conditions.
C.
Do not proceed with installation until substrates have been properly prepared and deviations from manufacturer's recommended tolerances are corrected. Commencement of installation constitutes acceptance of conditions.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
1.
Authorized EcoStar Gold Star applicator shall not proceed until defects are corrected.
D.
Roof System Preparation: Provide clearance on underside of decking or sheathing to allow for specified penetration of fasteners. Manufacturer recommends system be applied only over the following:

C.
Install metal edging at eaves and roof edges as required for complete installation.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** EcoStar advises that metal flashing and securement of metal should be to industry standards (SMACNA) to prevent the metal from pulling free or buckling. EcoStar also recommends that all flashing metal be stainless steel or copper.
 
D.

e.Install underlayment up head walls or vertical walls; unless installation conditions do not permit, a minimum of 12 inches (305 mm).
 
e.
Do not leave Glacier Guard Granular Surface (100) exposed to weather more than 30 days after beginning of installation. Do not leave Glacier Guard Smooth Surface High Temp (300) (black) exposed to the weather more than 60 days after the beginning of installation. (White can be left exposed up to 120 days) Installation of Glacier Guard at temperatures below 40 degrees F (4.5 degrees C) may require nailing to hold membrane in place while adhesion develops.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
2.
Aqua Guard:
a.
Apply 41.5 inches (1054 mm) wide sheet over complete deck, lapping the area covered with Glacier Guard. Lap end joints 6 inches (152 mm) and side joints 4 inches (102 mm) and double through valleys.
b.
Do not leave exposed to weather more than 180 days after beginning of installation. Follow manufacturer's installation instructions for 30 to 180 day exposure.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
3.
GAF VersaShield:
a.
Install GAF VersaShield underlayment over the entire deck surface, including over Glacier Guard.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
b.
Install in conjunction with Class A roof tiles for those projects requiring a UL Class A fire rating. GAF VersaShield shall be installed per manufacturer's specification.
E.
Roof Tile Installation:
1.
After installing underlayment and before installing the roof tiles, clean the surface of debris and dirt.
2.
Place tiles so color variations are evenly distributed over entire roof area. Shade variation occurs differently from pallet to pallet and within individual pallets; blend tiles between bundles and pallets to insure even distribution of color variations. Contact EcoStar Customer Service for available factory blending options.
a.
Blending: Color "mapping" or "blotching" in appearance is not acceptable.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** EcoStar authorized Gold Star applicator required to obtain manufacturer's warranty. Delete if not applicable to project.
 
b.
EcoStar authorized Gold Star applicator shall correct appearance in the event of color "mapping" or "blotching."
3.
Minimum Fastening: 2 ring shank fasteners per tile shall be used. Fasteners shall be installed at the designated "nail here" marks on the tile. Contact EcoStar Technical Department for proper nail lengths depending on product line used.
4.
If using a pneumatic nailer, do not over drive nails, causing the tiles to curl upward. Remove overdriven tiles and re-fasten in accordance with manufacturers recommendations.
5.
Do not install tiles with an upward curve. Bend each tile in a downward arc before nailing. Do not hold tiles from behind while nailing, as this will cause an upward curl of the tile. Bending not required for Niagara Slate or Shake Plus tiles.
6.
Do not install tiles butted against each other. Maintain a minimum gap of 3/8 inches (9.5 mm) between installed tiles. Maintain a minimum 3/8 inches (9.5 mm) gap between installed tiles and sidewalls or roof protrusion.
7.
Beginning at the eave, install a starter row of roof tiles gapped a minimum of 3/8 inches (9.5 mm) between tiles and protrusion while achieving a 3/4 inches (19 mm) overhang with two EcoStar ring shank fasteners per tile (in location shown on tiles). This layer of tiles will become the starter row. The final tile at roof edges to be a minimum of 3 inches (76 mm) wide. This may involve cutting the roof tile to fit.
a.
To Cut the Roof Tile: Score the tile with a straight edge and utility knife and snap tile at that score. Empire Shake Plus tiles are more easily cut with a saw.
8.
Install first course of tiles in the same manner as the starter row with the exception of the second layer having an offset to the starter row. The first course of tiles shall be installed flush with the starter row with no exposure.
9.
Continue installing tile courses up the roof slope to achieve specified exposure. Place chalk lines horizontally up the roof slope for every tile course.
a.
Do not use red chalk, as this will permanently stain the roof tiles.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** EcoStar authorized Gold Star applicator required to obtain manufacturer's warranty. Delete if not applicable to project. Delete if not required.
 
10.
It is the responsibility of the Gold Star Authorized Applicator to ensure that each roof tile has been bent to provide a downward curve prior to tile fastening. Bending not required for Niagara or Shake Plus Tiles.
11.
Valley Areas:
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete valley design not required.
 
a.
For an open valley design leave a minimum of 2 inches (51 mm) on each side of the center of the valley exposed and uncovered by the roof tiles. A V-Style, W-Style, or Double W-Style valley metal are acceptable.
b.
For a closed valley design cut the tiles in a straight line to fit no closer than 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) against tile of adjoining roof slope.
12.
If roof tiles have been stored in temperatures below 45 degrees F (7.2 degrees C), bring tiles back to manufacturer's minimum material installation temperature of 45 degrees F (7.2 degrees C).
13.
Hip and Ridge Tiles:
a.
Install hip and ridge tiles at hip locations. Place a chalk line up the hip line.
F.
Ridge Vent Installation:
1.
Install ridge vent system as per manufacturer's application instructions and then place hip and ridge tile over the ridge vent.
2.
A minimum 2-1/2 inches (63.5 mm) stainless steel ring shank, hand-driven fastener shall be used on a ventilated hip and ridge to fasten the hip and ridge tile to deck.
3.
A minimum 2 inch (51 mm) stainless steel, hand-driven fastener shall be used on an unventilated hip and ridge to fasten the hip and ridge tile to the deck.
4.
Place fasteners in the location marked on the tile. Install hip and ridge tile at the proper exposure for the product line.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
G.
Phased Roofing: The weathering process of the tiles begins immediately upon installation and exposure to the elements. Install at a continuous rate to completion. Avoid lengthy delays which may result in appearance differences.
3.3
PROTECTION AND CLEANING
A.
Protect installed products until completion of project. Minimize foot traffic over completed areas of the roof.
B.
Upon completion of the roof system installation, inspect and remove debris from roof. Cleaning of soiled areas and debris is the responsibility of the applicator.
