LATEST FROM GAF ROOFVIEWS
Roof systems require a number of performance properties, in addition to keeping water out of a building. Those properties include fire resistance, wind resistance, impact resistance, and R-value of the installed system, to name a few.
Specifying the right materials and assemblies for a low-slope roof system to satisfy a building's specific performance and safety requirements can be challenging. Even with design considerations in place, existing resources for finding applicable roof assemblies are limited in scope, functionality, and can feel disconnected. This is where the Directory of Roof Assemblies (DORA®) can help!
Keeping water out of a building is undoubtedly the primary function of a roof system. But one could argue that ensuring a building's roof stays in place during high-wind events is equally important. Let's face it, without a roof, it's hard to keep water out! This blog takes a look at one of the subsets of wind design of roof systems: Wall Zones 4 and 5 and their relationship with roof perimeters.
When designing and specifying a low-slope roofing system, it's important to consider the roof system's ability to resist external fire. Now, there are products available that can provide the necessary fire rating for your roofing system while also helping your building achieve credits toward LEED certification.
