What we can offer

TAS 105- Fastener Withdrawal Resistance

This Testing Application Standard (TAS) covers procedures for withdraw resistance testing of fasteners used for attachment of various components to various substrate materials. The test procedures outlined in this TAS provides a means of determining whether a particular mechanical fastener, when used to attach any Roofing Component to a specific substrate, provides sufficient resistance to static uplift force to meet the wind load requirements of this code for a specific building.

TAS 106- Tile Uplift

The TAS 106 tile uplift test is used to test a newly installed or existing tile roof system to determine the wind uplift resistance force of the roof tile. (TAS) 106: This application Standard is a product application quality control test to confirm: 1) sufficient bonding by the mortar or adhesive to the tile and underlayment in a mortar or adhesive set tile system; or 2) effective mechanical attachment of components within a rigid discontinuous roof system.

TAS 124- Onsite Wind Uplift Testing

(TAS) 124-95: These field test procedures provide a means for determining the uplift resistance of a new, adhered, built-up, bituminous Roof System Assembly, as stated in applicable specification bid documents, installed on a building within the High Velocity Hurricane Zone. The test procedures are intended to confirm and supplement the uplift resistance performance of roofing systems as determined under laboratory conditions and confirm that a given installation meets the design pressure requirements under ASCE 7-98, as required in section 1606 of the Florida Building Code, Building.

TAS 126- Moisture Survey

(TAS) 126-95: The testing requirements Outlined herein provide a means of: 1) establishing the criteria for testing for moisture trapped within Roof System Assemblies; and, 2) determining the percentage of moisture in specific areas and components as required in section 1521.12 of the Florida Building Code, Building.

Drainage Survey

ACRC can review and analyze the drainage capacity of the roof for compliance with requirements of the Florida Building Code.

Deck Inspection

ACRC can review and analyze the current condition of the structural roof deck and make recommendation for any deficiencies found and for give load capacities.
