Imagine Having Your Roof Collapse On You!

Posted by Ryan Gartrell On February 3rd

What would you do, if while you were remodeling your home, your roof collapsed on you?

Last year, one of our friends in the roofing business found a guy trapped under the rubble of his collapsed roof after a support wall had been removed. (Whoops!)

Crushed by all the debris around him, he was not able to free himself.

It wasn’t long, and the word was out…

The community, as well as our team, immediately stepped in to help.

We all worked together as a team to safely free the gentleman from the rubble, and guess what —
He survived!

Like many, the guy who was trapped felt that renovating his home seemed fairly easy.

Nowadays, many do, especially with all the do-it-yourself information that is online, in magazines, and on TV.

Seeing the completed project photos, hearing the stories, and seeing projects completed ‘over a weekend’ make it seem SO easy!

However, when you are removing walls there is one important step you don’t want to skip —

Take the time to have an expert look at the walls and determine if you are working with a support wall.

What is a support wall – and why does it matter?

A support wall carries the load of the roof, or floors above it. Removing it without reinforcing the load it carries is very dangerous and can lead to a roof collapse!

It’s really important as you work through your project, that you pay attention to the details every step of the way – checking that the structure has the support it needs is a very important detail.
