ASCE 7-16

Professional Roofing



ASCE; wind; uplift; zone

In June 2017, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) pub-lished an updated edition of ASCE 7, “Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures,” (ASCE 7-16). Because ASCE 7-16 is referenced in the International Building Code,® 2018 Edition (IBC 2018) as the basis for design wind-uplift load determination for all roof assembly types except asphalt shingles and tile, you should be aware of the changes.
