Why is Rooftop Snow Removal Important?
The first and most important thing to know about rooftop snow removal is that is extremely dangerous and should only be attempted by an insured professional.
Keeping your roof snow-free will prevent the formation of ice dams from forming on your roof. Ice dams are a major cause for your roof to leak and damage your home. Besides ice dams, it is important to keep all that excess weight from collecting on your roof as it could also damage your roofing. The weight of snow on a roof builds up quickly, causing stress on your roof which could lead to potential leaking or even a cave-in. A good guide of measure for clearing your roof is to do so after every six inches of snowfall to keep it from building up to the point of creating ice dams.
It is especially important to keep up with rooftop snow removal if you have had problems in the past with ice dams forming or leaky roofs. However, if you've never had issues before and you roof is not as susceptible to ice dams you can get away with waiting until up to 12 inches of snow has fallen.
Another factor to consider when deciding it is time to get your rooftop's snow removed is if the snow is dense, wet snow or dry, fluffy snow as their weights are considerably different. If you are questioning when the best time is, just get in touch with us and we can give you a good idea.
Lastly, take a look at the forecast - if it's going to be torrential snowfall for a week straight, you should know it is a good idea to keep an eye one it. However, if it is looking to warm up after a snow fall, it may clear up and melt away on its own. The best plan is one that is made ahead of time, so if you are looking to keep up with your rooftop snow removal in a safe and effective way, get in touch with us and we will get you lined up in our rooftop snow removal schedule!
