Attaching to roof top ledger board

Wall attachment
  • Benefit: Allows more patio roof height, this is especially true on many track homes built on a slab which generally have a short wall height that makes attaching to the wall not a viable option.
  • Drawbacks:
    1. Not designed for snow regions, the ledger board can create a "snow dam" that puts undue stress on the ledger board. Putting holes in your roof is an added maintenence however the attachment point is outside your wall line so if a leak did occur you could visibly see it and it would not get into your home.
