Roof wind load and snow load analysis is a significant contributor to the safety and longevity of your structure.
Summit’s structural engineers perform roof analyses to determine how a building handles wind load and snow load. Our wind load and snow load analyses take into account roof geometries and site-specific situations.
During a roof wind analysis, our structural engineers will calculate your site-specific wind load to ensure that a building can resist wind conditions. We look at component and cladding loading as well as overall building stability.
Our engineering service areas include:
It is important for every structure to receive a wind load analysis, even if local building codes don’t require one. Summit Engineering’s structural engineering team examines all aspects of a building’s roof to ensure structural integrity and safety.
Summit’s structural engineers also perform snow load analyses. Much of a snow analysis mimics wind analysis, but a snow load analysis also includes considerations of drifting, rain on snow, weight, sliding and other variables. Summit Engineering offers complete roof analysis for your structure.
Summit Engineering is located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire where extreme wind loads and snow loads are commonplace. Working in NH and throughout the Northeast we are well equipped to deal with these unique heavy snow load and high wind load conditions. Our award winning team of structural engineers are experienced in these types of roof designs and load analyses.
