Steel Roof and Snow Slide PHOTOS

Postby Tarlo Farm » Sat Nov 07, 2015 3:22 pm

Not about noise, not about the piles of snow. Some of you know I built a barnominium - a pole barn with half for the horses, half for me. On my side, I also have an outside masonry chimney for my inside wood stove. The mason wasn't worried about snow slide taking off my chimney, the wood stove people were. I kind of am. I had an indoor at my old place and know how snow slid off that baby, taking out poorly placed fences and breaking a gate. I plan on putting up a few of those snow brakes on the roof above the chimney. Does anyone have any experiences with this problem?

Around here, they use a thing called a "cricket" for these situations. Google "metal roof cricket" and you will see if this would work.

What does a barnominium look like? Do you like it?

I don't know much on this subject, only that some people who used the snow brakes had the unfortunate experience of having wet/heavy/icy snow slides take out the actual snow brakes and rip part of the roof off with it! Whomever you get to do the work, make sure that they take this into account.

All right, top down: South side patio, horse area to the east. Middle: an inside shot. Last one: Early photo looking north. Living space to the left. Living area wall runs north and south just to the left of the service door. Overhead garage door for vehicles, then horses have run-in right of overhead door. At the time the photo was taken, the well had just been drilled, run-in entry covered by OSB. Currently paddock fence runs almost directly over the well-head.

Thanks, so far, so good. I can fit everything inside that I really want in for the winter: two cars and a truck, a 4X8' trailer, the tractor and attachments. Plus all the horse stuff. Only put up 100 square bales inside, buying round bales once a week right now and will do so all long as weather allows. Big open room in the house part has proven to be a great place to entertain, which was part of my plan. Glad to have a mild winter - so far - for my first winter here.

Thanks! It started out as a "snowy slippery slide" question. Then evolved. I'm pretty happy with my new home. No real issues yet, and loads of benefits. Occasionally I miss my indoor...well, any time I want to really work my horse, I miss my indoor. But honestly, at 57, with additional interests besides dressage, I know my limitations. :lol:

My neighbor had also faced the same issue. To fix this issue without wasting much time he called professional chimney sweeps Nassau County to handle the problem. You can also try these services as I have also heard good things about them.

I got through last winter - which was mild - with a homemade diversion. This next year I'll make a more substantial one. It's essentially a triangle of 2X4s coated with steel resting against the face of the chimney. The snow diverts as it slides.
