Ok, first thing is to make sure you have all the proper PPE....... Hard hat, safety glasses, steel toe boots etc.  Next, you need to obtain a couple of extension cords and a hair dryer.  Don't worry about having exterior grade extension cords with proper grounding because time is of the essence in a case like this, just use whatever you can find.  Next, you will need to visit your local City Building Codes department to obtain a "De-Snowification" permit. To procure this permit you will need to submit form "I-m-S2PID" in triplicate to your local Building Official.  Once you have the proper equipment and permit, you are ready to begin!  Start by using the ungrounded hair dryer to melt away the snowpack on your roof.  Once it is all cleared away you will want to completely cover the existing roofing material with electric blankets.  You can use a common staple gun to secure the blankets to your roof. Once installed, be sure to set them on the highest possible setting to melt any snow that may contact the roof and avoid an embarrasing repeat of this event.  Please have a friend document your entire repair procedure with photos that you can post here.  Hope this info helps, and remember, we are all pulling for you!!!

One of the roofing materials is thatch, bundled reeds attached to rafters, It is incredibly labor intensive, taking even a skilled thatcher weeks to complete.

Ha that's amazing.  I've found another use for the electric blanket besides baking myself like an oven by falling asleep with it on. Smile

In all seriousness, though, if a snow-packed roof is above a foot of snow throughout the entire roof, it's best to either hope for warm weather soon or start chipping away at some of the thicker sheets because the last thing you want is a sagging roof.

Do not let the owners put on a new roof.

Get a price reduction and have the work done yourself.

You do NOT want the low cost roof they WILL install...
