Architectural Sheet Metal Quality Assurance Guide

SMACNA

Description

Developed to provide guidance in the evaluation of exterior sheet metal building components - roofing systems, exterior walls, flashings, copings, etc. - during initial construction and for ongoing condition assessments and maintenance.

This manual can assist owners/operators that may have limited knowledge and experience in the specifics of architectural sheet metal components, specification, fabrication, installation, or evaluation. It can also serve as a procedural inspection guide for experienced professionals who review architectural sheet metal systems regularly.
