Snow Load Analysis Based on ASCE 7-98

You need to use a snow load formula for flat roofs. … To figure out the load on your roof, take the depth of snow in feet and multiply it by the weight of a cubic foot of snow. If the snow weighs 10 pounds per cubic foot and there are 1.5 feet on the roof, each square foot of the roof is getting 15 pounds of pressure.
