    Default Snow problems on roof !!!!

    Hi, looking for someone w/experience w/this problem!!! Got to work this a.m., and the office bldg has a pitch to the roof & snow is melting & sliding to the edge--which results in the weight being on the gutters---which is pulling the gutters off the bldg. Any solution to this besides getting someone to go up there & remove the snow? Is the rain (now coming down) adding to the weight of the snow, or will it effectively melt the snow--temperatures outside now are about 37 degrees. I've reported problem to the DM but was hoping someone might have a solution

    Thanks, everyone.

    As a "former" snow person I can say you are on the correct track.

    Without a major heat wave to melt it all quickly your only solution is for some brave soul with a ladder and a rake or a broom to get up there and pull it all down.

    As some one who usually got elected to do that job -- it ain't fun!!!!


    Good luck and pray for sunshine!!!

    Pat,

    It should melt tomorrow. You should see my driveway which is on a hill.

    Thank goodness I don't have a hill!!! (at work here anyway). At home my driveway is a slight hill & when I take my dogs out, the yellow lab pulls me & I feel like I'm skiing (minus the skis!)

    Yes...supposed to be 50 degrees tomorrow---Hurray!
