Canadian Roofing Reference Manual


The Canadian Roofing Reference Manual is intended to provide in-depth, best practices and technical information concerning the installation of roofing systems in Canada. This manual contains sections on general work and equipment safety related to roofing projects and installation of different roofing membranes.

This manual is intended to complement existing roofing training and apprenticeship programs that exist across Canada. The manual serves as a ready reference for use on the job site and to supplement other information which roofers need to do their jobs safety, effectively and efficiently.

The manual will be under continuous review and will be revised to reflect changing technology, processes, and materials within the roofing industry.

The Canadian Roofing Contractors Association gratefully acknowledges the work done by the National Technical Committee and others in developing this manual.
