AbstractVarious types of membrane control joints are used in roofs to provide for expansion and contraction and to prevent splitting and excessive shrinkage at roof edges, but they frequently do not perform satisfactorily. The use of roof area dividers and expansion joints is discussed, and guidelines are given for the improved design and positioning of joints in a conventional roofing system.
