3)Sam is responsible for overseeing the construction of a new office building downtown. Having previously only managed older buildings, Sam expects to address each of the same project concerns as those associated with reroofing projects in this new roofing project except: a-adjusting the construction schedule around weather constraints; b-selecting materials that are maintainable; c-coordinating with workers from other trades to keep them off the completed roof; d-containment and abatement of found asbestos.

d-containment and abatement of found asbestos.


4)In selecting a new roofing system, Michael sees the need for sight shields to limit the visibility of the rooftop equipment. This is an example of considering _______________ in roofing selection. a-roofing design; b-building location; c-building use; d-building aesthetics

6) Josh chose to reroof his building with a modified bituminous roof because it uses less petroleum and is comprised of polymeric modifiers that enhance the physical properties to make the reinforcements: a-waterproof; b-fireproof; c-wind-resistant; d-heat-resistant



7) The roof on Smith Towers is covered with layers that are 45 mils to 60 mils thick, so they are not as resistant to abuse as other roofs in the city.

11) Frank is establishing a roofing maintenance program for each of the following reasons except: a-it will help to protect the investment in the building; b-it will add years to the life of the roofing; c-it will detect minor problems before damage is widespread; d-it will increase the life of rooftop equipment such as HVAC units

d-it will increase the life of rooftop equipment such as HVAC units
