Roof Snow Removal
Quincy, MA gets hit by about 4 feet of snow per year on average. This snow buries cars, streets, driveways, backyards and front yards, parking lots, and everything else that’s on the ground. And aside from the transportation challenges it presents with getting out of your driveway, getting your car free so you can go to work, making sure your parking lot is clear for customers, and so on, there’s another big challenge and risk associated with heavy snowfall in our area. Roof damage. The presence of a lot of heavy snow on your roof is not only a huge burden on your roof, it can be a huge burden on your wallet and financial situation. Everyone knows how heavy water is, and snow is just crystallized flakes of water that have fallen from the sky and settled wherever they landed. Whether they’re on your roof or your driveway, they land and the weight compresses them into heavy snow layers weighing hundreds of pounds. Leaving this much snow and ice on your roof can easily cause a great deal of damage if left unmonitored and unchecked, and there’s no better way of keeping it under control than calling the leading professional roof snow removal company in the Quincy area, Quincy Snow Removal. Even if your roof is built to be extremely strong or is very new, the chance that there is a weak spot is higher than you think, and the chances are the relentless weight of the snow will find it. The last thing you want is to discover the damage months later.
Threat of Roof Collapse
Your house might be new or it might be old, it might have a strong roof or it might have a weaker roof, but either way it’s probably endured a lot of the hard winter weather we experience in Quincy. But while your roof might leak when it rains and blows hard, snow damage works differently. First of all, snow is incredibly heavy and doesn’t run off like rain does. As it accumulates on your roof, it’ll keep adding weight to your structure and increasing the chance that a weakness will be found and get worse. This is why the best thing is to have your roof snow removed after a heavy snow so that your roof isn’t under that resting pressure. We can help prevent roof damage quickly and efficiently by safely removing snow from your roof. All you have to do is call us, and we’ll come clear it off!
When the sun melts the snow on your roof a little, it will often sink down onto the surface of your roof and then refreeze. This creates a ridge of ice that often forms at the edge of your roof. This is not a huge problem by itself, but when the rest of the snow melts a little and repeats the process, the melted snow or water doesn’t drain off the roof as it’s supposed to. Instead, it gets caught by the ice dam and then backs up. This sitting water can leak into your roof, into your walls, and cause serious water damage and rot. Not to mention the fact that as snow melts and then cools to solid ice again, it becomes even heavier than ordinary snow, adding to the weight load of your roof. The build up of heavy snow and ice, sitting water, and potential water damage to a large portion of your roof or walls is why it’s so key to have a qualified snow removal service preventatively keep your roof clear and safe from snow and ice dams. The last thing you want during or after a harsh winter is to discover you have massive water damage in your home.
