Raising the Ceiling in Roofing: USG Securock® Brand Roof Boards

One of the most critical components of any commercial roof is the cover board. A high-quality roof cover board is essential to providing a sturdy and durable backbone for the roofing system.

Installed over the insulation layer and under the roofing membrane, a roof cover board is a layer of material that provides a smooth, even surface that allows for easy adhesion to the roofing membrane. Cover boards also improve the overall structural integrity of the roof while protecting the insulation and interior components of the roof system from damage with increased fire and puncture resistance.
