The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association says its new first-edition Architectural Sheet Metal Quality Assurance Guide is a tool for evaluating exterior sheet-metal building components — roofing systems, exterior walls, flashing, copings — during initial construction and for ongoing condition assessments and maintenance. Owners and building operators with limited knowledge and experience in the specifics of architectural sheet metal components, specification, fabrication, installation or evaluation, will find this book most valuable, SMACNA officials say.

It can also serve as an inspection guide for experienced professionals who regularly review architectural sheet metal systems. The publication also includes explanations of the various metals and methods used in roofs and walls, the concept of redundancy, building envelope fabrication tolerances and more. The information in this 112-page guide comes from contractors with decades of in-the-field architectural sheet metal experience and is a supplement to SMACNA’s Architectural Sheet Metal Manual and the 1929 edition of Standard Practice in Sheet Metal Work.
