Lightweight concrete

A new development that has gained popularity during the last few years, has been the introduction of lightweight concrete as a material for roof decking and as an insulation system.  This new application provides a variety of economic and environmental advantages:

  • Lightweight insulated concrete provides consistency in compressive strength and density.
  • Properly installed, LWIC roofs can achieve the proper slope without the necessity of tapered roof insulation systems.
  • These roofs provide a thermal R-value of R-30.
  • Since these roofs are an integral part of the building structure,  when remedial care is needed, only the membrane must be removed – the concrete acts as the insulation.  This means that removal costs are significantly reduced – and removal costs can comprise as much as 50 percent of any roof rehabilitation project.
  • LWIC roofs reduce the dead load of a structure.
