Don’t shovel snow off roofs — yet
Should you worry about the snow piling up on your roof?
Probably not — at least not yet, says Rick Simmet, roofing manager for Specialty Home Products.
“This snow’s really light, so I don’t think it’s going to be an issue like it was last year with that really heavy snow,” he said.
Some carports in apartment complexes collapsed following last year’s biggest accumulations of snow. Simmet says it may not be a bad idea for homeowners who can safely clear snow to do so, but doesn’t see it as a pressing concern.
That could change as the snow piles up or melts and gets heavier, he said.
“Where we may run into problems is when it warms up and the snow starts getting heavy,” he said.
