Seven Signs Your Roof Might Collapse

As I’m sitting in my house waiting for more snow tomorrow and eyeing all of the snow already on the roof I got to thinking how I would know if the ceiling is about to cave in. According to the Providence, RI Emergency Management Agency, these are the seven signs:

• Severe roof leaks
• Cracked or split wood members
• Bends or ripples in metal supports
• Cracks in walls or masonry
• Doors that pop open
• Doors or windows that are difficult to open
• Creaking, cracking or popping sound

IF you suspect an imminent roof collapse EVACUATE IMMEDIATELY AND CALL 911.
