The fully adhered misnomer

Professional Roofing



fully; adhered; membrane; roof system; performance; misnomer

The term “fully adhered” is used by some manufacturers and specifiers to identify adhered single-ply membrane roof system configurations or refer to the adhesion of rigid board insulation to underlying substrates. But this terminology can create application and performance expectations that are unrealistic and likely cannot be achieved.
