Watch your lighting, cooling and heating bills drop!![/faq][faq title=”What is snow load?” icon=”icon-help-circled-1″]Snow load means how many pounds of snow you have per square foot.  Building departments will calculate the snow load area as the heaviest winter that location has received.  We add a cushion of 30% and add weight of rain as well.  The term used is psf (pounds per square foot) For example, if your building codes require 30 psf and your patio cover is 20×15 (300 square foot) we would have to design the louvered roof system to carry 9,000 lbs load.  Solara has generic engineering up to 30 psf and we can always calculate a site specific engineering for your needs.  The generic engineering is approved for roll formed or extruded louvered roof systems.
