Insul-Lam is used as a non-structural nail base in either a one-layer or two-layer roof system. For a two-layer system, the installation is the same as that for a one-layer system, except staggering the joints between the first and second layer.
It will be necessary to remove 1 1/2 inch of EPS from the edge of the Insul-Lam sheets that create the edge of the roof assembly. Removal of the EPS should take place with a heating element set to the proper depth.
Begin by snapping a chalk line 1 1/2 inches around the perimeter of the roof deck. The Insul-Lam should be flushed to the line. Begin laying the sheets together. Once an Insul-Lam sheet is in position, fasten the assembly to the deck with Big SIPs Screws, following the recommended fastening pattern.
Install lumber into the offset created around the perimeter of the the roof. Nominal 2X material should be inserted into the reveal. Once inserted, attach with 8d nails 6" o.c.
Once all Insul-Lam panels have been installed and fastened, roofing material may be installed following the roofing material manufacturer's instructions.
