Differences are good I figure…mostly…
10/12 is generally quite normal and not a problem at all. But frozen shingles in the shade tend to be like ice ball bearings. Even our “squirrels” (guys that run around on a 12/12 better than walking on flat ground) are having a hard time sticking on this metal as it goes up. They just have to keep walking and sliding downward. I never could really feel comfortable doing that like they can, but I can normally handle a 10/12 with no problem. I get a little more nervous on three stories. And in the summer it is real easy to stick to it with the right shoes. Sometimes the metal surface is 130F, so the right rubber will practically melt itself to the roof in the summer. We finally got out of the shade today. Half this house never sees the sun. That makes for some cold slippery frozen days this week. Anyway, it’s all good. I’m not going back tomorrow. Get to deliver a 12x 24 barn instead.
It occurred to me today to ask, “Where do you buy clothes for cold weather?” I know that’s probably a funny question for most of you, but all my clothes come from the thrift store, and I’m sure I never see anything for real cold weather there. Who sells the stuff? Do you have to order it from somewhere? I’m sure up north it is sold at regular stores.
Don, I want one of those snow plows. I can imagine an ALDOT sign on it.
