Heely-Brown Company’s Tapered Engineering Department provides tapered insulation system layouts for flat and sloped roofs. Tapered insulation systems allow for positive drainage to interior roof drains, scuppers, or the exterior of the building.
We look forward to assisting you in the design, estimating, and installation of your tapered insulation system. Most projects are usually priced within 24 hours and we will provide you with a scaled shop drawing for submittals and a material list for installation.
For more information please contact Melissa by phone at 404-352-0022 or toll free 1-800-241-4628. If you would like to reach the tapered dept. via e-mail: Melissa Carter
Utilizing computer aided design (CAD); we produce a scaled shop drawing that clearly pinpoints the exact placement of the tapered insulation panels. This helps to ensure proper panel placement in order to achieve desired slope, drainage, and R-value. Whether from our own database of construction plans and specifications or a contractor provided roof layout, our tapered department has the information, expertise, and technology to accurately produce a tapered insulation system design that will help achieve a high level of quality and provide for a long life of the finished roof system.
Depending upon the roofing system (BUR, Single-ply, etc.), we estimate varying types of insulation from expanded perlite, polyisocyanurate (ISO), expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XEPS), and wood fiber. The slope of tapered perlite, ISO and XEPS is estimated from as little as 1/8″ slope-per-foot to as much as 1/2″ slope-per-foot in a single layer.
These types of insulation are stair-stepped with flat insulation to achieve a constant slope. Tapered EPS is available in single-layer thicknesses of up to 24″, without limits to the slope-per-foot.
