DELIVERY, STORAGE AND HANDLING
Delivery and Acceptance Requirements:
Deliver materials in manufacturer’s original, unopened containers with manufacturer’s labels intact and legible.
Carefully unload in a manner to prevent damage.
Storage and Handling Requirements:
Refer to Product MSDS for precautionary measures during storage and handling.
Keep pail goods and membrane materials dry, stored in rolls standing on end, selvage edge up, elevated from contact with moisture, at temperatures not less than 5°C (42°F) or more than 49°C (120°F) and pre-conditioned before installation. Handle rolls with care to avoid crushing, puncturing or other damage. Ensure selvage edge is not damaged during handling and banding strips are removed before application of membrane. Do not use wet or damp membrane or flattened rolls.
Protect materials from damage by elements, weather and other activities on raised platforms and covered with breathable tarpaulins.
Ensure pail-goods have tight fitting lids when not in use. Store on end in up-right position.
Ensure materials stored on roof stay within designated live load limits of roof construction. Provide ample bases under equipment and materials to distribute weight to conform to these live load limits. Do not store materials on, or transport materials across, completed roof areas.
Do not expose insulation [and roof sheathing] to wet weather. Store and handle insulation to prevent broken edges and corners, punctures, indentations or other damage. Remove damaged insulation from site.
Ensure bitumen delivered in form of cartons has manufacturer's material identification labels intact on each carton; if in form of bulk tanker delivery, each shipment to be accompanied by written certificate from manufacturer confirming material identification including following:
Softening Point as per CSA A123.4.
Minimum FP per ASTM D92.
Do not intermix different types or grades of bitumen in bulk shipments.
Protect sheet metal materials from bending and scratching.
Store adhesive, emulsion based waterproofing mastics, sealants and primers between 15°C and 26°C (59°F and 79°F), or restore to temperature ranges before use.
Store materials at site within temporary sheds or trailers; such facilities must be well sealed and kept at least 3°C (5°F) warmer than exterior ambient temperature to ensure materials remain dry in terms of roofing. Do not use wet, damp, frozen or damaged materials. Stack rolls of felt on end.
Do not store more than 1 day's supply of materials on roof at any time. On roof, stack materials on pallets and completely cover with incombustible waterproof tarpaulin whenever work is interrupted, or when there is precipitation of any kind. Securely tie covering to pallets in such way as to be weather tight. Plastic covers and shrink-wrap covers by manufacturers are not acceptable for site storage and be removed upon delivery to roof.
Store combustible materials away from heat and open flames. Protect and store materials in dry, ventilated area away from welding flame, spark and from elements or harmful substance.
Do not lift rigid insulation in slings which will damage edges. Remove damaged insulation and replace with new material at no cost to Owner.
Ambient Conditions: Do not apply roof system during inclement weather or when ambient temperatures are expected to be below -5°C (23°F). For temperatures below this practice cold weather application techniques as recommended by membrane manufacturer.
Use following article for repairs, additions or installation of new mechanical equipment on existing roof. Delete if not applicable.
Modifications are to take place on existing adjacent roof areas as part of work of this Section. Do no use existing roof areas as storage, except to extent required for removal, alteration and replacement of work.
Existing roofing is covered by roofing warranty. Obtain from Consultant necessary information regarding such warranty and notify manufacturer of existing roof by letter before work is commenced on existing roof.
Execute alteration work in manner to maintain existing warranty.
Provide temporary protection of existing roof while existing construction is open.
