Even with recent updates and reinforcements, one garage in Grand Rapids, MI couldn’t hold the weight of all the snow we’ve seen this winter and collapsed under the pressure. Neighbors said they thought it was a “planned demo”, but instead, it was the harsh reality of weather and circumstances out of our control.
Garage owner Guy Bazzani said thankfully no one was hurt. That was not the case, however, for several classic cars he was storing in the garage. We do not have information about the type of cars stored in the garage, nor the amount of damage done to them, but we can only imagine that “historic” cars and a roof collapse did not mix well together.
Are you safe from the threat of this winter weather still plaguing us? This story just goes to show us that even when you think you are safe and you have your cars nicely stored inside of a warm, dry garage, all may not be well for very long. All it takes is one tree branch, a small earthquake, a busted water-main, or a kid with an attitude problem to cause you hundreds, potentially thousands of dollars in damage. Are you prepared to deal with the costs of damage when the inevitable happens?
