Please,



1. IKO is involved in a lawsuit  To my knowledge it is one plant in the states and is attributed to production problems during a small period of time.  Unfortunately this plant can put out a lot of shingles in a small period of time.



2.You always use a vapour barrier in an insulated roof system. There are several options from IKO.



When it comes to flat roofing you have many options.  A 180 Base and 250 Cap torched down to 3mm Protectoboard over IKOtherm insulation over a vapour barrier is what you want.  How this system goes down depends on what type of deck you have.(steel,wood,concrete)
