  • Course Description: AEC Daily: Innovative Rooftop Snow Retention Solutions


    At this time, there are no national or state codes relating to snow retention for roofing applications, even in the heaviest snow load areas. Consequently, it is very important for building professionals to take extra care when designing a snow retention system for installations in snowy environments. This course provides a review of the problems and solutions associated with roofing in cold climates, including a discussion on the proper engineering of snow retention devices. There are many dangers involved if the appropriate considerations are not made while building and maintaining a roof in an alpine region.



    Learning Objectives

    State the common roofing challenges that are unique to cold climates, such as snow moving on the roof, ice damming, premature aging of roofs, damage to property and vehicles, and injuries and deaths.

    Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the common solutions to snow and ice issues.

    Compare the accepted roof design practices in Europe to those in the United States and Canada.

    Explain the concepts and effectiveness of roof ventilation and snow retention in reducing snow and ice problems.

    List the factors to be considered in the proper engineering of snow retention devices.
