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 offers 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.
1. Learn the basic design process for choosing the correct roofing assembly
2. Review the changes within the latest version of the ASCE 7
3. Understand how roof assemblies are tested and rated for uplift pressures
4. 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.
