NRCA's Technical Services Section is responsible for coordinating and developing NRCA's technical activities and research programs. Directed by NRCA's Technical Operations Committee, which establishes NRCA's technical programs and priorities, the Technical Services Section provides technical support to NRCA members and the roofing industry.
NRCA's technical activities are conducted by seven NRCA technical committees and task forces. This year, 28 volunteer members are contributing their time and expertise to NRCA's technical efforts.
The technical information contained on NRCA's website is adapted from various technical publications written by NRCA's technical committees, task forces and technical services staff. Additional information periodically will be added to this section, so please visit it frequently. If you are looking for roofing-related technical information not available on NRCA's website, call NRCA's Technical Services Section at (847) 299-9070.
NRCA has conducted extensive testing using ANSI/SPRI ES-1 of various edge metal flashing profiles that are usually shop fabricated. This testing provides roofing professionals who fabricate edge metal flashings in their own sheet metal shops a means of supplying edge metal flashings that comply with ANSI/SPRI ES-1.
