In preparing for a green roof at the Pleasant Playground, Philly Green wall and roof installed a Hyload CTEM membrane waterproofing for the roof, adding tapered insulation to insure proper drainage, and a gypsum based decking board underlayment. The  Hyload CTEM (Coal Tar Elastomeric Membrane) is a the 2 ply 150 mil thickness, is warrantied with ponding water,  and is approved as a root barrier. The CTEM is made from recycled materials, manufactured in a process that does not produce toxic waste, and is low VOC.

Tapered cants were installed to ensure proper drainage.

 

Secure rock gypsum base was installed over the deck to provide a roofing underlayment much more durable than insulation board
