STANDARDS

There are a large number of standards pertaining to roof systems, the majority of which were developed by ASTM. The ASTM standards typically pertain to test methods (laboratory and field) and product standards. However, there are a few design and application guides:

  • ASTM D 6510 Standard Guide for Selection of Asphalt Used in Built-up Roofing Systems
  • ASTM D 6369 Standard Guide for Design of Standard Flashing Details for EPDM Roof Membranes
  • ASTM D 5469 Standard Guide for Application of New Spray Applied Polyurethane Foam and Coated Roof Systems
  • ASTM D 5082 Standard Practice for Application of Mechanically Attached Poly(Vinyl Chloride) Sheet Roofing
  • ASTM D 5036 Standard Practice for Application of Adhered Poly(Vinyl Chloride) Sheet Roofing
  • ASTM D 3805 Standard Guide for Application of Aluminum-Pigmented Asphalt Roof Coatings

There are a few ANSI standards that pertain to roof systems, including:

  • ANSI/SPRI RP-4 Wind Design Standard for Ballasted Single-ply Roofing Systems
  • ANSI/SPRI ES-1 Wind Design Standard for Edge Systems Used with Low Slope Roofing Systems
  • ANSI/SPRI FX-1 Standard Field Test Procedure for Determining The Withdrawal Resistance of Roofing Fasteners
  • ANSI/SPRI RD-1 Performance Standard for Retrofit Drains

Wind Loads: ASCE/SEI 7-10 Minimum Design Loads For Buildings and Other Structures (this standard is often referred to by local code requirements and regulations)

Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and FM Global have also developed a number of standards pertaining to test methods. In addition, FM Global has several Property Loss Prevention Data Sheets (the majority pertain to wind performance). Although the Data Sheets are not “standards” because they did not go through a consensus development process, they have essentially become de facto standards:

  • Standard for Tests for Uplift Resistance of Roof Assemblies: UL 580
  • Standard for Uplift Tests for Roof Covering Systems: UL 1897
  • American National Standard for Evaluating the Simulated Wind Uplift Resistance of Roof Assemblies Using Static Positive and/or Negative Differential Pressures: ANSI FM 4474-2004 (R2010)
