Porches, Decks, and Awnings Newark NJ

For years most of the time when the crew put an awning on a home the screen door needed adjusting as soon as they were finished. I figured someone on the crew was standing on the screen door like it was a ladder and would mess it up. I didn't want them to break the door but more importantly I didn't want anyone to fall and hurt themselves.

Porches, Decks, and Awnings

Porches, Decks, and Awnings (And the like)
Wed 04/21/04 10:11:40 pm
By GEORGE PORTER

Well, this is going to get a little ugly but it needs to get passed around so here goes. Every home has an installation manual and every one I have read (that would be a bunch) says that, "anything connected to a HUD Code must be self-supporting". This means porches, decks, awnings, room additions, carports, and on and on. The technical meaning of this is that no live load or dead loads from the new structure can be transmitted to the original structure (the home). This doesn't mean that you can't have them, just that the home can't hold them up. These additions must hold themselves up. An exception would be if a factory special builds a home that was designed to hold up a certain structure like a garage. Such homes can be made, but the regular products from the factories do not come with this option.

The principle of "free standing" is that if the actual connection between the adjacent structure and the home were disconnected and the home were to be moved away, then the structure would be able to stand by itself and support all of its designed roof load without failing.

The main reason why the manufacturers want this to be is that the frame system under the home doesn't give any extra support to the sidewalls of the home in sufficient quantity to hold another structure. These homes will do what they must do to comply with the Hud Code but will not support other buildings or, more specifically, the weight of other buildings.

Here's the nasty part, we have all seen 10's of thousands of them doing it! I used to have a great side business putting up awnings on people's homes in my area. Never gave it much thought, just did it like everybody else, one side goes to the house and the other side gets poles, simple. For years most of the time when the crew put an awning on a home the screen door needed adjusting as soon as they were finished. I figured someone on the crew was standing on the screen door like it was a ladder and would mess it up. I didn't want them to break the door but more importantly I didn't want anyone to fall and hurt themselves. I would ask who was the person doing this and they would all say, "Are you nuts? You can't stand on a screen door!" This went on for a couple of years then it mysteriously stopped. I figured the guy busted his rear one day and quit doing it. So I never found out who was doing the screen door thing until a few years ago. It was me! By hanging a 14 x 40 aluminum awning on the side of a 14 wide home I caused the ends of the floor joists to bend at the sidewall and buggered the door. Ah, but, I remembered that this door trouble stopped in the middle of all this awning sales thing, why would that happen? It dawned on me that that was about the same time that I decided to stop ordering 20-pound roof load homes and upgrade to 30-pound roof load homes!! The new homes had a stronger floor and roof!
