Abstract : The US Army is responsible for maintaining millions of square feet of metal panel roofing on a wide variety of facilities. This type of roofing system shares a number of general characteristics with other types, but they use certain distinct types of materials that have their own specialized distress and degradation mechanisms. Dedicated inspection guidance and condition index calculation methods are needed to quantify the condition of an installation's metal panel roofing assets in order to make the best use of Army maintenance and repair resources. This manual was developed to serve as a standard reference for performing inspections and calculating a flashing condition index (FCI) and panel condition index (PCI) for use in facility maintenance management activities. This guidance represents a new implementation of the widely used ROOFER Sustainment Management System.
