Metal Roofs

I am thinking of installing a metal roof. I am in central New England. My present shingled roof has a 3½" to 12 pitch and is rated for up to 30 pounds per square foot. This winter The roof had to be shoveled on a regular basis. I am both worried that with heavy repeated snows my home is at risk for structural damage and I suspect that this 30 PSF rating is not a real world figure. I also have a problem with heavy snow blocking the combustion air for my furnace which is built into the furnace stack. Would a dark colored metal roof with such a shallow pitch be self clearing under heavy snow?

How can I insulate a sash-weight window in a 1900 house? (I wish titles showed up on the main page so they didn't repeat the question....) Seems like you kind of have to leave a big hole there for the weight. But a lot of cold air is getting in there. I'd rather keep the weights if I could.

How can I prevent this bird from migrating to, and damaging my house?

How can I prevent a bird from damaging my house? This exact bird (or family of birds) arrives every winter and uses the area under the roof above my window to next. I'm amazed by the stunning accuracy of the on-board navigation system on this crow-like bird, but it keeps ripping grates off my house and tossing insulation out.

Please offer suggestions for my house over a winter vacancy

I will be vacating my house for a few months over the winter. Aside from some house plants there will be nothing organic in the house to worry about. I was planning on turning the heat down to near 40. The house is not particularly well insulated so, if we get a serious cold snap,which is entirely likely,I would like to be prepared. I was thinking of turning off the water from the basement so the pipes will be empty,therefore not freeze. Is there any danger in this? Have you any other suggestions?
