Shingle side laps of interply sheets uniformly to ensure that required number of interply sheets covers substrate at any point. Shingle in direction to shed water.
C.
Embed each interply sheet in a continuous void-free mopping of hot roofing asphalt to form a uniform membrane without glass-fiber base-ply sheets touching.
D.
Embed each interply sheet in a continuous void-free application of Modified Bitumen Adhesive at the rate of 1-1/2 to 2 gallons per 100 square feet to form a uniform membrane without glass-fiber sheets touching.
E.
Torch apply according to manufacturer's published installation instructions.

SBS MODIFIED CAP SHEET MEMBRANE INSTALLATION
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete type not required
 
A.
Install bituminous roofing membrane cap sheet according to roofing manufacturer's written instructions, starting at low point of roofing system. Extend roofing membrane sheets over and terminate beyond cants, installing as follows:
1.
Adhere to substrate in a solid mopping of hot roofing asphalt applied at not less than 425 deg F (218 deg C).
2.
Adhere to substrate in a continuous void-free application of Modified Bitumen Adhesive at the rate of 1-1/2 to 2 gallons per 100 square feet to form a uniform membrane without SBS Modified Membrane touching glass-fiber mid-ply / base sheets touching.
3.
Adhere to substrate with torch application.
4.
Unroll roofing membrane sheets and allow them to relax for minimum time period required by manufacturer.
B.
Laps: Accurately align roofing membrane sheets, without stretching, and maintain uniform side and end laps. Stagger end laps. Completely bond and seal laps, leaving no voids.
1.
Repair tears and voids in laps and lapped seams not completely sealed.
2.
Apply roofing granules to cover exuded bead at laps while bead is hot.
C.
Install roofing membrane sheets so side and end laps shed water.

FLASHING INSTALLATION
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete type not required
 
A.
Install base flashing over transitions to vertical surfaces, at roof edges, and at penetrations through roof according tomanufacturer's written instructions and as follows:
1.
Prime substrates with asphalt primer if required by built-up roofing manufacturer.
2.
Backer Sheet Application: Mechanically fasten backer sheet to walls or parapets. Adhere backer sheet over built-up roofing at cants and on non-nailable substrates in a solid mopping of hot roofing asphalt or modified flashing cement.
3.
Flashing Sheet Application: Adhere flashing sheet to substrate in a solid mopping of hot roofing asphalt applied at not less than 425 deg F or modified flashing cement. Apply adhesive to back of flashing sheet if recommended by roofing manufacturer.
4.
Flashing Sheet Application: Adhere flashing sheet to substrate with torch application.
B.
Extend base flashing up walls or parapets a minimum of 8 inches above built-up roofing and 4 inches onto field of built-up roofing.
C.
Mechanically fasten top of base flashing securely at terminations and perimeter of roofing. Seal top termination of base flashing with a strip of glass-fiber fabric set in asphalt roofing cement.
D.
Roof Drains: Set 30-by-30-inch metal flashing in bed of asphalt roofing cement on completed built-up roofing. Cover metal flashing with built-up roofing cap-sheet stripping and extend a minimum of 6 inches beyond edge of metal flashing onto field of built-up roofing. Clamp built-up roofing, metal flashing, and stripping into roof-drain clamping ring. Install stripping according to roofing manufacturer's written instructions.
E.
Apply EZ Seal PMMA Liquid Applied Membrane where indicated on the project drawing or as noted in these specifications.
