what-is-the-live-load-of-my-building

This is a load applied normally to the roof area that would represent people moving around on the roof.
The industry standard is 20 psf, this covers the fact that people will be on the roof to install sheeting and trim, or people just walking on the roof system.
Some areas with occasional heavy snow fall will have a large snow load but want to see the live load increased to cover the snow sliding off of the roof.
