Hi! How much snow is TOO much snow for a flat roof? We've had a big snow year:

My neighbor's roof is about that flat and here in PA we get enough snow to make them shovel it when it gets bad. they've never had problems, but feel it is better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks for the replies! I have shoveled about a quarter of the roof thus far. The house has been standing since 1959, so I am probably worrying (and shoveling) for nothing. But, better safe than sorry, as eegs2K said!
