Inverted Roofing, also referred to as an Upside Down Roof, offers a wide variety of benefits. An inverted roof typically has the waterproofing membranes installed beneath the insulation. Insulation boards are loose-laid on top of the membranes and then weighted down with patio stones or gravel ballast. This roof system is ideal for roofs with heavy foot traffic, large mechanical equipment, or tall buildings subject to high winds.
There are many benefits of an inverted roof system. The waterproofing layer is protected from expansion and contraction caused by freeze/thaw cycles meaning the functional life of the roof can be considered significantly longer. The insulating layers are removeable which makes repairs easy and less expensive.
