Install Right Shield 40 onto a clean, dry & structurally sound deck. The deck may be composed of plywood, wood plank, metal, gypsum sheathing or concrete. Prior to application the deck surface must be free of dust, dirt loose nails, protrusions and voids. Right Shield is a self adhesive roofing underlayment that needs a structurally sound surface to adhere to.
Apply Right Shield 40 in fair weather when the air, roof deck and membrane are at temperatures of 40 °F and rising.
Consistent with good roofing practices always install the membrane so all laps shed water. Work from low to high. Side laps need to be a minimum of 3.5" and end laps a minimum of 6".
Repair any damages to membrane using a round patch cut from Right Shield 40 extending 6" from damaged area.
Apply membrane to entire deck for protection against wind-driven rain. When protecting strictly against water backup and ice dams extend beyond the highest point expected.
