I.M.O., just like a roof to a house, the only way to keep it from collapsing, is to keep it clear of snow and ice. Could you reach up with a broom and clear it away after a snow fall? Heat tape?

I'm gonna have to second that opinion. Vinyl siding is meant to be able to move freely with the change in condiitons/temp. You'd only be asking for more of a problem than whatever Mud dobbers are.

It's actually sold in 4x8 sheets also. Out of curiousity, what type of framing did you use? I've never heard of a 2x14, unless it was a LVL, I-joist or something manufactured.
