This webinar is part of the Commercial Roofing Academy
Commercial roofing has been traditionally slow to change when it comes to installation methods, materials, and types. However, today a new and innovative approach to installing commercial roofing in high-wind areas has proven successful - resulting in commercial projects that can withstand higher winds without being compromised. For architects and designers, it is important to understand how uplift impacts a commercial roofing system, how code influences specification, and how roofing warranty wind speed coverage is assessed. All of these factors play a part in specifying the appropriate commercial roofing system in high-wind areas where durability and resiliency are critical for the health and safety of occupants.
This webinar will provide insight into new commercial roofing technologies available, how uplift needs to be considered for commercial roofing systems, and the importance of designing a roofing system that will support durability and resiliency requirements with confidence.
- List new innovative commercial roofing systems that can be used specifically in high-wind areas.
- Explain the importance of a durable and resilient commercial roofing specification to provide safety and well-being for occupants.
- Discuss how code and uplift ratings on commercial roofing assemblies must be addressed to create safe and resilient commercial spaces.
- Identify specific challenges to commercial roofing assemblies and systems in high-wind areas.
