Saddle went over something that was removed when the place was re-sided.

Re: Artistic Mast Design


Is it actually code to not have the weather head above the roof line?

No. Why would the height of the roof have anything to do with the height of the weatherhead?

Te only 'violation' I see is the point of attachment is above the weatherhead. Most POCOs require them to be below it.

Re: Artistic Mast Design


Most POCOs require the drip loop 12' plus above ground, thus one story homes have the weather head generally above the roof line.... two story mostly side wall mounted.

At some time in past, the two buildings had a weather shingle bump out at the ceiling/floor level that lengthened the service life of the house paint/ siding.
