Halacha - Sukkah Roof - Schach
Submitted by Alex Rose  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The wooden slats that support the sechach may be screwed down. While there is a chumra to avoid using metal to support the sechach even indirectly, a chumra should not lead one to do anything potentially dangerous. However the sechach itself should not be permanently attached to the walls, and doing so would render the sukka invalid. A better alternative would be to lay a couple of heavy, wooden beams on top of the sechach to prevent it from blowing away.
