Attaching cantilevered roof, roof overhang, PERSIST roof, and snow load.
I want to wrap my project with a CAB, then add a cantilevered roof. I would like to shade the second floor windows somewhere near the middle of Summer Solstice and March Equionox, in Buena Vista, CO. I want to use about 3 feet of overhang (as this is the higher south facing roof) with, what seems to be typical 2×4 framing used in the PERSIST method, and 4″ of Roxul Toprock below the roofing substrate. I suggested using a Simpson Strong Tie L bracket, and my architect mentioned that the inspectors will want to see a product specified for that use. Also, it needs to meet the snow load. I didn’t see anything relating to this question in “Every house needs roof overhangs, or Airtight walls and roof sheathing. Did I miss another article that discussed the method used to meet the load requirements? Thanks in advance. Mike Yates
