This command allows you to set up insulation and underlayment items for later use in creating an insulation system or a single layer underlayment, such as sarking, underlay or #30 felt etc. As is the case for defining all products in Roof Wizard, the key item in the definition is the Product Code – it is this that links the products with the accessories , the pricing and labour etc.
