Uniform vs. Non-uniform Snow Load
When talking about snow on your commercial roof, there are two types of loads that you should be familiar with: uniform and non-uniform.
A uniform snow load occurs when the snow is equally distributed on your roof, while non-uniform snow loads are unevenly distributed and provide a lateral force as well, such as with snow drifts.
Non-uniform snow loads can be especially dangerous when coupled with high winds, because this can cause the unevenly distributed snow to melt, compact, refreeze, and make room for more snow. Because this melted and refrozen snow only loses volume, its mass remains the same, which can create big problems.
Our team of experienced roofers are familiar with all of the signs of dangerous snow loads and are quick to help you fix the problem.
How Supreme Roofing Deals With Snow On Your Commercial Roof
With such varying amounts of snow among our service area locations, it is important to take into account the different snow load requirements throughout the country. As a general rule of thumb, these load capacities range from 40 to 65 pounds per square foot.
We measure this by cutting out a square foot square of snow from your roof and weighing it. Then we can determine whether snow removal is required in your location depending on your local building codes.
Signs That You Need Snow Removal Services
If you see any of these signs during a winter snowstorm, then you may have excessive snow putting stress on your roof:
- Deflection or separation of the roof deck

- Bowing or flexing of the roof deck

Make sure you call an experienced roofing company, like Supreme Roofing, quickly if you notice any of these signs.
