didnt think they would, Some companies wont allow some will, some guys dont some do, did they reschedule??steveman123 said:well the guy came. He wouldnt do it, would not move the dish. I am so pissed. I even offerd him an extra $100 then $200 he still wouldnt do it.
????? what???? here is a quote from a random web site that specializes in home repair and suchmikedz4 said:what do the people who have 4-5 feet of snow on their roof do? They eventually gotta get it off so it doesn't collapse under the weight of the snow.
stuart628 said:no damage to the roof? as I understand, you are NEVER NEVER to shovel the tile on the roof as this will cause damage to the way the roof will seal!
dgordo said:my roof is tar, it doesn't have shingels and besides, it needs to be redone in the next year anyway. i was very suprised that the installer even showed up, but he said that his boss told him that if he did not do his installs for the day he would "be in trouble."
That's gutsy! I used to sell roofs and if there was a pitch of 4 or more (almost all roofs) I woulsn't go up with rain, frost or snow. Those were the days to bid the flat roofs! Not to sould like the OSHA guy or anything but safety should always be first. Yours or someone elses.tjlandberg said:for me it depends on how steep the roof is. If it's not that steep snow really doesn't matter. If I need to then I crawl. But if it's semi-steep than I would reschedule.
