Re: Roof Sheathing at Ridges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes, in addition to diaphragm shear forces, there is also a need to
consider uplift effects in high wind regions, for sheathing to framing
connections, and for framing to wall to foundation connections (e.g. a
complete load path is required).  APA also has recommendations for
attaching wood structural panel roof sheathing to framing; contact
help(--nospam--at) for roof sheathing fastening recommendations in high
wind regions. The highest uplift forces occur at the ridge and eaves,
and along the end walls (e.g. around the diaphragm boundaries).
