The winter of 2010 - 2010 was indeed a hard one here in Connecticut. Record setting snow fall has caused untold damage. Ice dams and leaks were extremely prevalent after the first big storm. More snow came and roofs started to collapse.
While doing a home inspection yesterday, I saw a few reminders of the damage caused by the snows, now thankful gone, of this past winter.
Scaling my ladder I first spied the tell tale stains of ice damming on and just under the soffit. I asked the homeowner if she had any ice damming related water leaks over the winter. Her response was a quick and resounding, "Yes!"
Yep that's what I thought.
Getting on the roof I began heading toward the chimney over to my right going towards the back side of the house. As I approached the chimney I noticed the garden shed in the neighbor's back yard. It was obvious the shed had a peaked roof, which was now some where between peaked and flat. It was plat.
As I started making my way back towards the front of the house another building across the street grabbed my attention.
I do love the bird's eye view from a roof.
An old garage with front section of its roof imploded. Yet another casualty of this winter.
While I gazing at the now inverted roof in the garage, I caught glimpse of yet another fallen roof just behind and to the right, once again on or should I say in an old garage.
I am so glad the snow is gone for another winter...What's that? More snow predicted for Friday....aaaaaaaaaaaagh!
