TOPIC: Would you walk this roof??

Would you walk this roof?? 11 years 8 months ago #29577

Low slope roof, mostly covered with snow.
Went up to look at chimney and flashings.

Would you have walked this roof.  You can see my ladder in the distance

No, and I hope you never find out the hard way why you shouldn't either.

Stay safe out there !!!

Jeff I here you.

It was early and that portion by my ladder was dry, the snow was packie and the roof was low sloped. I try to make good decisions, but this probably was not one of them.

I could not afford an injury and need to watch on these colder mornings for frost and black ice.

It's what you can't see that hurt you.
I would have gone on the "dry" portions of the roof if there was enough of it to make a difference, but would never consider the snow covered areas. Ice under the snow will really ruin your day. It's just not worth the risk.

I understand what Jeffrey is saying, I guess I might have if the snow was packed and I seen an issue on the chimney that might have been serious. If not no I wouldn't have. Most of us can't afford the injury. Glad you didn't get hurt.

David, what are you going to see thru the snow, even being up there? Did you take a shovel up with you? :) :)
