Roof Snow Removal and Clearing

Why do I need to remove the snow from my roof?
A major roof problem that homeowners face is the build-up of heavy snow and the development of ice dams. The excess weight of snow can damage roofs, gutters, and down spouts. Excess snow can also block the air flow of the home's ventilation systems. Ice dams form when heavy snow melts during the day, flows under the shingles, and refreezes at night. After several melting-freezing cycles, water can enter the attic and damage insulation, ceilings, walls, and even the building itself. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent damage caused by heavy snow and ice dams.
By keeping the snow load to a minimum, you will reduce the chances of an ice dam forming. In addition, you will prevent damage to the roof due to the excess weight.Large icicles can be safely removed by our trained crews.
