Re: My Fairclough Cover Failed
MS, what do you mean by snow struts? The 1x2 longitudinal fir strips?
There should be two rows of them. I had an installer use only one row a couple of years back and made them do it over.
No they are additional braces for heavy snow load areas... If you are not busting snow off a Fairclough after each storm then you really better have the snow struts... Even then these covers need to have the snow removed so the don't collapse..
I have some pics somewhere I can upload..
Not my pic but it shows the struts..
