Adobe Style Home With Parapet Walls & Flat Roof


Gents,

I have to admit that this one has me a bit puzzled as to how best to reroof (hot mop) the dwelling while making sure I'm bringing the base & cap up the parapet wall to code. The house is a Sante Fe/adobe style constructed dwelling.

Here are a few pics:




I've reviewed the 2015 IBC, particularly "1507.6 Mineral-surfaced roll roofing" and didn't find a reference to this type of construction where it meets a vertical surface.

I'm thinking that I may have to cut into the existing stucco surface in order to being the roll roofing material up high enough. I'd then use a termination bar and sealant to finish the work. The question is how high up the parapet wall do I go?

Well here I am replying to my own thread.

I've had extensive discussions with the outside sales rep at my primary supplier who provided me with an installation spec sheet for a popular mod bit supplier. Based on what he told me and conversations I've had with other installers, the inspector will accept the work if done to manufacturer's specifications. I'm still surprised that the IBC doesn't address this particular application but am grateful to have found some guidance I can count on.
