About This Program

In the industry there is a need to sort out the confusion between the building codes, uplift rated assemblies, and warranties by explaining what each offer and how they should be considered. To understand the building code, we need to review how uplift is determined and the industry accepted rating method of roofing assemblies for comparison. After understanding the code criteria, how a roofing warranty wind speed coverage is regarded by the industry and building code will be reviewed to assist in clarification.

Session Takeaways

  • Learn the basic design process for choosing the correct roofing assembly.
  • Review the changes within the latest version of the ASCE 7.
  • Understand how roof assemblies are tested and rated for uplift pressures.
  • Realize the differences how warranty winds speeds are handled by roofing manufacturers and what to watch out for, so the building owner receives the most comprehensive coverage.
