BUFCA installers are able to assist with the design of a roofing system to meet most requirements and supply a full specification, taking into account substrate preparation, primers, if required, suitable foam systems (typically 40-50 kg/m3 for roof applications) and type of weather coating.

Dewpoint calculations can be compiled to determine the thickness required for condensation control.
