Roofing is not defined as a waterproofing system, but it does form an integral part of building envelopes. Roofing is that portion of a building that prevents water intrusion into horizontal or slightly inclined elevations. Although typically exposed to the elements, roofing systems can also be internal or sandwiched between other building components.
Today, roofing systems take many different forms of design and detailing. Plaza decks or balcony areas covering enclosed spaces and parking garage floors covering an occupied space all constitute individual parts of a total roofing system. Buildings can have exposed roofs, as well as unexposed membranes acting as roofing and waterproofing systems for preventing water infiltration into occupied areas.
