Re: Load under soffit

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If this soffit is exposed exterior loads, such as the ceiling over an inset entrance or coverer walkway (porch), you will need to use component and cladding wind loading.  The wind load(suction) can be quite large, most model codes require the wind for a flate roof zone 2.
