Specifying CERTA

Professional Roofing



CERTA; applicator; training; torch; safety; specify; design

Since 2004, NRCA and the Midwest Roofing Contractors Association have worked together to improve roofing torch safety through the Certified Roofing Torch Applicator (CERTA) program. Although the CERTA program primarily addresses how experienced roofing workers should safely use roof torching equipment, proper roof system design, material selection and construction details also are essential elements in fire-safe torch-applied roof system applications. If you are involved in the design and specification, product manufacturing or distribution, or application of torch-applied polymer-modified bitumen membrane roof systems, you should be aware of the CERTA program and its essential elements.
