Now that the driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks are cleared, what about the roof? We offer professional roof raking to clear them of any snow and ice that can be hazardous to you and your commercial or residential property. Your roof is not invincible, and while it can take quite a bit of pressure during the build-up of a winter storm, you don’t want to keep the snow on for long. Not clearing your roof of snow after a winter storm leaves it to build up during the next one. Your roof will start to feel the weight soon enough.
Not clearing your roof of snow can also create another problem. If you take a look at your roof and the ice is building up on the eave of your roof, you have an ice dam. Ice dams are caused by a combination of factors. Heat rises, and as you heat your home or property during the winter, it will heat your roof. This means any snow that was not cleared from your roof will start to melt. As the melted snow travels down the slop of your roof and then begins to free again, and ice dam is created. Ice dams lift your shingle up, damaging them. This is a recipe for a water leak.
We will come in to rake your roof, and assist in clearing any preformed ice dams. We will service your property and home this winter from any potential snow and ice damage.
