Please join us for a live course. Roofing Wind Speeds: ASCE 7, Uplift Ratings, and Warranties.
When it comes to roofing assemblies, architects and engineers face confusing terminology and rating systems related to uplift testing, meeting code standards, and selecting warranties. Gaining a better handle and making accurate comparisons requires designers to understand how uplift is determined using local wind speed, and the industry-accepted uplift rating testing method of roofing assemblies. Finally, how do these factors play into the manufacturers’ offered warranties to ensure building owners receive the appropriate coverage?
To understand the building code, the session will review how uplift is determined and the industry accepted uplift rating test 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.
