Redwood roof weight limit.

What are the roof weight limits on these? I saw many standing and sitting on top of their rvs in order to see the race at Talladega this past weekend.

Thank You.

The biggest factor on your roof isn't the weight Ö well I know there is a limit but it is mainly the poor quality. The plywood is so undersized everything moves and it is also not anchored properly and this is the reason so many have staples or screws popping up. If I ever have to reroof ours it will also get a complete new decking and after removing the old I can finally repair all the ac duct issues and add the proper insulation.

I would not put a lot of weight up there because of what Steve stated..

When we are at the races, my 2 daughters usually go up there, buy they are under 100# ( or so they think )

I tell them to keep away from the edges as the staples that hold down the corner protector that is under the roofing will raise up and could cause an issue down the road..

There were 3 of us on mine when we changed an A/C. Just don't stand in the same place.

I will only crawl on my roof to avoid ply wood issues but I have had as much as 36" of snow on my roof and crawled up there to shovel it off.

I walk on the roof a couple of times each year to clean the roof and check for any other issues. I am careful where I step and stay away from the edges. The roof will support your weight........just don't jump around on it!

Flex Armor Roof

I replaced our roof with RV FlexArmor roof 3 years ago.Have not had any problems so far. No worrying about screws or staples coming up. Never needs caulking and will never leak. Well worth the money and you canít beat the warranty.
