What is up with the wording of question # 5 on the proposed wind mit form changes? The B answer for flat roof would seem only to apply to multiple >5 unit dwellings and even then the 10% rule would seem to have been reversed to 90%. The calculation on other residences would eliminate the flat roof option leaving the answer as other. The calculation would now be done only on perimeter measurements of the “main roof system” what is a main roof system". If you should decide to measure the perimeter of the “main roof” would that perimeter include the portion of the main roof adjacent to the area that is not the "main roof? OR does the 'main roof system refer to all types of roofing configurations?
Once again the form is open to interpretation. I know how I interpret it but it would be nice if someone would define some of the terms being used. To me it is misleading as the term “main” would seem to imply the type which covers the greatest area. Also under the new form an 80 sq ft flat roof combined with a 10’ gable would render most 2500 sq ft homes as other. Formerly the other catagory would seem to have not included flat roofing in the calculation
This new form will once again change the credit, not due to prior inaccurracy or improper inspection work but due to the changes in the form. Round 3. Still don’t know if total roof area should be calculated using the pitch or sq. area under roof. I’m O.K. with that though because nobody else knows either.
