Module ID 16106 Overview Buildings of all shapes and sizes have low-slope roofs—supermarkets, stadiums, office buildings, schools, and other commercial and industrial facilities are just some examples. Low-slope roofs have many essential components to keep water out and insulate a building. These components include insulation, a waterproof covering (or membrane), and flashings. Roofers must be familiar with roof system components and how they function to keep buildings warm and dry.
