During some renovations the contractor had to get into my attic. He found two of the roof beams were broken and we think it was from last year`s snow. The insurance company sent over an engineer and he said the weight of the snow broke the beams but the rubber roof coating stretched and prevented the collapse. The insurance company is sending a contractor to scope the work and he said there were numerous row houses in DC with the same problem from last year`s snow. Folks may want to check their attics before this year`s snow season.
