Keep in mind that TUFDEK is for non rated roofs. If you need a Class A (very likely you for consult with your building dept) system, this product will not give you that.

This is a good system to put over concrete or other non combustible surfaces that need Waterproofing.

  1. Hi Bill,

    Thanks for helping spread the News about Tufdek! However I would like to respond to your comment, ” This is a good system to put over concrete or other non combustible surfaces that need Waterproofing.”

    In fact, Tufdek can be applied to any project over wood frame (combustible) structure where a Class A rating is not required. As it was written, I wanted to ensure that some who follow you may make an incorrect assumption that Tufdek is only to be installed over concrete. As you mentioned – always consult local building codes. Thanks again!

    Regards,
