All tears or punctures in facing shall be repaired with pressure-sensitive tape compatible with and recommended by the manufacturer of the vapor retarder facing. 5.

On standing seam roofs, install thermal spacer blocks over the insulation between roof fasteners in accordance with the metal building or component manufacturer's recommendations. 7. It is the responsibility of the building contractor to install the roof so that it is weathertight, to prevent water damage to the insulation after it is installed. FIELD QUALITY ASSURANCE A. During the course of insulation work covered by this specification, visually inspect the job to verify that the insulation and the facing are being correctly installed and that finished appearance viewed from below or within meets specified standards for uniform appearance. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS A. The insulation contractor's employees shall at all times be properly protected during installation of all insulation. All job site operations shall be conducted in compliance with applicable provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, as well as with all state and/or local safety and health codes, and regulations that may apply to the work.
