          A.Install lapped base sheet course, extending sheet over and terminating beyond cants. Attach base sheet as follows:
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete type not required.
          1.Adhere to substrate in a solid mopping of hot roofing asphalt.
          2.Adhere to substrate by torch-applied method.
          3.Mechanically attach according to manufacturer's published installation instructions.
 
          3.11PLY SHEET INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install ply sheets according to roofing system manufacturer's written instructions starting at low point of roofing system. Align ply sheets without stretching. Extend sheets over and terminate beyond cants.
 
          B.At side laps of glass-fiber ply sheets, install in shingle-lap fashion to ensure the required number of glass-fiber base/ply sheets cover the substrate at any point. Shingle in direction to shed water.
 
          C.Embed each base/ply sheet in a continuous void-free mopping of hot roofing asphalt to form a uniform membrane without glass-fiber base/ply sheets touching.
 
          3.12CAP SHEET INSTALLATION
 
          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 degrees F (218 degrees C).
          2.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 broadcast/finish roofing granules to cover exuded bead at laps while bead is hot.
 
          C.Install roofing membrane sheets so side and end laps shed water.
 
          3.13BASE FLASHING INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install base flashing over transitions to vertical surfaces, at roof edges, and at penetrations through roof according to built-up roofing manufacturer'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, or torch-applied method.
          3.Flashing Sheet Application: Adhere flashing sheet to substrate in a solid mopping of hot roofing asphalt applied at not less than 425 degrees F (218 degrees C), torch-applied method, or modified flashing cement. Apply adhesive to back of flashing sheet if recommended by roofing manufacturer.
 
          B.Extend base flashing up walls or parapets a minimum of 8 inches (203 mm) above built-up roofing and 4 inches (102 mm) 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 (762 mm x 762 mm) 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 (152 mm) 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 required by specification.
