In Response To: roof creaks when snow falls (Stephen)

I have an Uncle who lives in Wyoming. He makes his living delivering newspapers in the Summer and watching vacation houses in the Winter. I asked him one time what there is to watching vacation houses in the Winter and he said it was mainly to rake snow off of the roofs because if he didn't they could collapse. I know building codes are different for different areas of the country. If I were you, I would check with your local building codes office and see if they have a standard for allowable snow weight.
