re: roof tile addition

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Charles,
Though I cannot answer any seismic question, remember to check the thickness of the roof decking and review the framing system for this new dead load. You don't want the roof decking to deflect and cause cracking or warping in that nice new tile roof. Or worse, the roof framing was not designed to support that much extra weight...
