Winter is quickly approaching. In fact, some forecasters are predicting 2″-3″ of snow as early as December 17th! Don’t let your homes or businesses be caught off guard by a sudden storm. Get prepared for winter weather now!
The snow is a heavy burden, especially on your roof. Twelve feet of snow can weigh up to 20 lbs. per square foot. For instance, last February the Mid-Atlantic region received over 24′ of snow in a 24-hour period – that’s like having the weight of 8 pickup trucks parked on top of your roof!
In cases like this with heavy snow, it’s just as important for you to clear your roof as it is for you to clear your sidewalk. If snow isn’t properly removed it can cause serious problems for your home, including:
- Ice Dams
- Indoor Flooding
- Clogged drains and gutters
- Collapsed Roofs
