Load Bearing - something that bears a load. Like a load bearing wall in a house. The wall is holding something up like the roof, another floor, etc.

Mostly used in building construction. The roof load is carried thru critical points in your home for example to the foundation structure

The loads on the roof exceed the design or work has been done on the house that has compromised the integrity of that design,ie;interior loadbearing walls removed etc..
