Forum Title: Black ice on the roof?
I never seen this myself until the other day. I guess this happens when the roof is sealed too tight and the heat can't escape so the ice that would normally melt turns to black ice (a thin layer of nearly invisible ice) and I found out the hard way and slipped. I will be on my butt for 3 weeks.

The more you stand on one the more you‚ll see it with your own two eyes.

This isn't unheard of and actually kind of common but most roofers don't see it because not many people get roofing work done in the winter unless it is an emergency.

I second that... What happened? 3 weeks is quite a time to be off work. I guess it doesn't matter much because of the holidays. Or are you including holiday off time as well and injury time?
