The standard roof pitch for the Seaside is a 6/12 pitch. A roof
pitch up to 8/12 can be provided.
The typical design load allows for:
12 pounds per square foot dead load
30 pounds per square foot live load
20 pounds per square foot wind load. (Equates to 100 MPH)
There are variables that affect the design sizes of the members,
specifically the columns and the beams, and those variables
generally include live load conditions that are usually location
specific. Building Codes normally dictate the applicable loads to be
applied in the member size designs.
PRESSURE PRESERVATIVE TREATMENT
As noted in the component list above, the laminated wood columns are
fabricated with lumber pressure treated prior to gluing with
Penta-WR type “C”, at .6 pcf retention for in-ground contact. For
applications where the treated member is not in ground contact, the
treatment retention is .3 pcf. The fascia boards are treated with
pentachlorophenol, and the .3 pcf retention is used.
EnWood utilizes the pentachlorophenol treatment because of its
premier qualities and the treatment does not discolor the wood and
can be stained or painted.
