# 2 12 Roof Pitch Snow Load

### 1 snow guard per seam every 15 feet of roof going up the slope.

2 12 roof pitch snow load. Once you know these values, our snow load calculator automatically finds the total weight of snow on your roof. The balanced snow load is applied everywhere where the roof structure is located.

Intuitively, this is the number of inches of snow on your roof in the place where the cover is the thickest. Starting at 6 inches from the bottom edge, place 2 snow guards equally spaced apart in the valley, in a staggered pattern, across the entire roof area.

Standing seam metal roofs— which allow snow to slide more easily— might do better with a 2:12 or 3:12 pitch. This information is found in the code book.

Your best bet is to hold the snow load and let it melt slowly. If the snow weighs 10 pounds per cubic foot and there are 1.5 feet on the roof, each square foot of the roof is getting 15 pounds of pressure.

I have a 4;12 pitch on a single wide 2001 mobile home and am thinking of going metal. Line up the pivot on one end of your rafter, at the corner.

Up to 45 psf ground snow load. Most roofers are telling me that metal will shed the snow 'garuanteed' and a few people are telling me that it will not shed snow all that well due to the pitch.

Up to 45 psf ground snow load. Constructing a new shed roof at the desired pitch is as easy as knowing how to use a speed square.

Roofing paper • ⅝ inch plywood decking under tile roofing. Resilient asphalt shingles lie much flatter to the substrate than slate, tile and concrete, which keeps water from being easily blown under them.
