DIY Tip of the Month: Snow Load

Snow load refers to the amount of “snow and ice” weight per square foot that a building’s roof is able to support.

In areas with high snow loads, several factors should be considered when purchasing polycarbonate sheets for a roofing project: Sheet structure and thickness, sheet width, purlin spacing, type of connection, slope direction, roof shape, and wind exposure.

Always consult with your local building inspector to determine the building code requirements for your area.
