2010-2011 Winter produced significant snowfalls and snow accumulation

The 2010-2011 Winter produced significant snowfalls and snow accumulation. Many building owners were hiring crews to hand shovel the roofs of their buildings during this period of time. Successive snow falls that accumulate on the roof of a building without being shoveled off or melting continue to add weight that needs to be supported by the structure below. The structure of many buildings were not designed to support the historic total accumulation that occurred in the 2011-2012 Winter without shoveling and as a result the roofs became overloaded and the result was excessive deflection or permanent damage to the structure.
