Recently, light-weight, insulated concrete has gained popularity for roof decking and as insulation in roofs for a number of economic and environmental reasons.
First of all, when repairs are needed, only the outer membrane of the roof needs removing, cutting the costs of repairs. Another attractive feature lies in the insulation effects of the concrete, leading to a significant reduction in removal costs—up to 50%. Concrete roofs have the advantage of a thermal R-value of R-30. And, when installed properly, LWIC roofs can create the slope needed without requiring a tapered roof insulation system. LWIC roofs also reduce the structure’s load.
