The Blizzard of 2015 is now burying New England with 2 1/2 to 3 feet of snow. That’s a lot of weight for your roof to bear! Olympic Roofing is here to help with snow removal to prevent damage to your home.
Having a snow-free roof is crucial for preventing ice dams from developing underneath the snow. These ice dams ultimately cause leaking and other costly damages to both the interior and exterior of any house. It is also very important to remove excess weight off your roof. Just one foot of snow on your roof is equivalent to thousands of pounds of pressure. Leaving snow on your roof for an extended period can weaken your roof, and even cause cave-ins, which results in thousands of dollars in repairs. So don’t wait until it’s too late this year!
Ice dams are an unwelcome winter roofing problem brought on by a combination of inadequate roof ventilation and a warm attic space. When ice dams are left untreated they can cause significant damage to a home undermining the roof, gutters, paint, insulation and drywall.
