More Snow–Think About Your Roof. . .

January 31st, 2011 · No Comments · News

The Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security has updates on the storm forecast and a warning from the National Weather Service to clear snow off roofs. Click here for information.

Recent news reports have emphasized that the weight of snow on flat roofs can be substantial and some buildings have collapsed from the weight. In addition, water can seep in if the gutters are jammed with ice. But remember safety is the first consideration.  Thank you to Jane F. Cullinane of the Connecticut State Library for this information.
