Measuring roof perimeter example

Here is an example of measuring a home for a wind mitigation

The metal patio roof is not considered in the calculations because it is not structurally attached.

The roof perimeter is measured following the blue line

The non-hip roof is measured following the red line.

12 feet for non-hip divided by 166 feet for the perimeter is 7.2% non-hip.  This is less than the 10% threshold on the new wind mitigation form, therefor this house would be classified as a hip roof on the new wind mitigation form.
