The 2020 IIBEC Manual of Practice: Roofing, Waterproofing, and Exterior Wall Consulting and Quality Observation, is the long-awaited and all-new third edition on industry standards of practice for building enclosure consultants and quality assurance observers. The Manual, with over 300 pages of information, photos, graphics, and fillable forms, provides recommended best practices in all areas of building enclosure consulting, including specialized areas such as commissioning, testing, and expert witness services.

New topics, topical to building enclosure consulting today, are drone use for roof and façade examinations, electronic leak detection for locating breaches in membranes, and whole-building air leakage testing for determining the airtightness of enclosures. Also included are procedures for construction contract administration, contract administration forms, a complete glossary of industry terms, and standards pertinent to building enclosure consulting.  

Professionals who follow the practices, principles, and precepts of this Manual will provide valuable service to their clients.


 “I compliment IIBEC on developing and publishing the new Manual of Practice. IIBEC obviously has spent a great deal of time and effort on this undertaking, and the document should prove useful to the roofing industry." Mark S. Graham - NRCA
