In episode 2 of the Standing Seam Metal Roof Design Series, the Sheffield team cover slope factors of a metal roof. The discussion includes differences between steep slope, low slope, hydrostatic, hydrokinetic, and other aspects. Testing standards and engineering are based on slope as well, so it’s important to know how slope will affect compliance to local and regional codes.

Episode topics include:
►Steep slope vs. low slope
►Component differences
►Testing standards
►Design considerations
►Design help
