Certified buildings are engineered to meet a specific snow and/or wind load for the area in which you live. Many areas, particularly in the northeast and along the coastal regions, require a specific wind or snow load. You should be aware of your area’s requirements and purchase a structure that meets your area’s requirements. You can rest assured that we will always recommend additional anchoring and bracing. However, we cannot know what your specific area’s load requirements are since they change frequently. It is your responsibility to know what they are and to purchase a structure accordingly!
