Welcome to Part 3 (the final part in our series) of our walk-through of SpacingTool.com. In the last step, we had input the dimension information for the projects multiple roof areas. In the next step, you will be asked to input your contact information and some information about the project such as its location and zip code. One question the our customers normally have trouble with is determining their “Ground Snow Load”. This is a unit of measure for snow that is expressed in “PSF”. You can typically call your local building inspector to obtain this information. You can also elect to use an online service, such as the one at www.groundsnowbyzip.com. At this site, you enter your project location and it does the rest. For our test roof we are going to use Nashville, Tennessee as the project location. Nashville has a ground snow load of 10psf.
Now we can enter the info for our project.
Once completed, click “Calculate”
In the next screen SpacingTool will give you a comparison list of the snow guards that will fit your roof. It will also show the amount of guards and pricing for each style. In our case, however, only one guard will fit this panel. That is the SnoBlox Deuce.
Click the checkbox next to your selected guard to complete the SpacingTool Layout. The next screen will show your complete layout with pricing information, a shopping list, and the layout for your specific roof areas.
Be sure to print this out and keep it for your records. Doing so, will entitle you to free lifetime replacement for any guards that crack or break for the life of your roof. Read over your layout thoroughly, prior to ordering / installing the product.
