  Conditions and limitations

The CCMC’s compliance opinion is bound by this product being used in accordance with the conditions and limitations set out below.

  • The products must be installed on roofs having a minimum slope of 1 in 4. The manufacturer does not recommend installation on lower slopes.
  • The products, including the requirements for slope, substrate, underlay, fasteners, flashing and installation temperature, must be installed in strict conformance with the manufacturer's installation instructions:
    • "Niagara Shake" dated 07/22 for Empire Niagara Shake and Majestic Niagara Shake;
    • "Niagara Slate" dated 04/22 for Empire Niagara Slate and Majestic Niagara Slate;
    • "Empire Shake" dated 07/22 for Empire Shake;
    • "Empire Slate" dated 07/22 for Empire Slake;
    • "Majestic Slate" dated 07/22 for Majestic Slate; and 
    • "Seneca Shake" 11/20 for Seneca Shake;
  • Existing roofing material must be torn off prior to application. The products must be applied to a clean, dry deck.
  • Adequate ventilation in the roof space must be provided in accordance with Article 9.19.1.1., Required Venting, of Division B of the NBC 2015 and the NBC 2020.
  • The panels must be installed with eave protection as indicated in Subsection 9.26.5., Eave Protection for Shingles and Shakes, of Division B of the NBC 2015 and the NBC 2020.
  • Flashing must be installed in compliance with the requirements of Subsection 9.26.4., Flashing at Intersections, of Division B of the NBC 2015 and the NBC 2020.
  • The products should not be used on vertical applications or mansard roofs.
  • Underlayment beneath the products must be installed in accordance with either the manufacturer's installation instructions listed above or Subsection 9.26.6., Underlay beneath Shingles, of Division B of the NBC 2015 and the NBC 2020, whichever is more stringent.
  • The product must be installed over solid sheathing in accordance with either the manufacturer's installation instructions listed above or Section 9.23.16., Roofing Sheathing, of Division B of the NBC 2015 and the NBC 2020, whichever is more stringent.
  • The roofing systems are for use in locations where access is limited for maintenance or repair purposes. When access to the roof is needed, temporary walkways or roof boards are recommended to avoid any permanent damage to the panels.
  • The products or their packaging must be clearly identified with “CCMC 14174-R.”
