Including one re-roofing weight is required for DSA projects in California (CBC 1607A.4.1).
What is typically used as a re-roofing weight? Is there a minimum allowable re-roofing weight?
 
I will also note that at least in post-tensioned concrete design, a small increase in the uniform load seldom changes the design.  That same total weight as a concentrated load can have a significant impact, however.
