In areas of the state outside of certified local government jurisdictions, the design snow load shall be based on the ground snow loads developed in "Snow Loads for Structural Design in Montana", authored by F.F. Videon and J.P. Schilke, Civil & Agricultural Engineering, Montana State University, August 1989. The minimum design roof snow load ...
As a homeowner living in an area with white winters, you need to be sure that your roof is able to carry the weight of your region's typical snowfall. After taking a few measurements, use the roof snow load formula for flat or for pitched roofs to determine the pounds of snow your roof has to hold.
Online Snow Load Calculator(for Buildings with Flat or Low Slope Roofs - for Balanced Snow, Drift, and Rain-on-Snow Surcharge Loadings) calculator (ASCE 7-05) for structural engineers, construction professionals and building planners.
Most building codes in the United States reference the procedures found in ASCE 7 - Chapter 7 (Snow Loads). Roof snow loads are based on the historical records for ground snow loads for a given location, however the local building authority should always be consulted to determine the correct roof snow load to use for a given site and application.
Zip: * Ground snow loads derived from Figure 7-1 of ASCE 7-10 ... Use our Roof Snow Load Calculator to determine your design roof snow loads. Please review our State Snow Loads page to investigate state specific snow load requirements. For additional questions or concerns about specific ground snow loads please call us at 1-425-741-5555.
Excessive roof snow load can cause your barn to collapse. When heavy snow meets fierce winds, even the best-engineered buildings can collapse. That’s why it’s important to calculate your roof load and be adequately insured for this type of situation.
It is the applicant''s or the Builder''s responsibility to supply a snow load to the building inspector. When the I codes were first adopted in NE PA, we chose to use the snow load of 50 as a default, since it roughly equals 38.5psf design load and we allowed a 30psf design load under our old code.
