When snowfall accumulates on the roof of a home, it can become a danger to the entire structure. As the weight of snow and ice builds up over the winter months, roofs are susceptible to collapsing. Action Roofing offers professional roof snow removal services in Billerica, Massachusetts. Our roof shoveling team will remove the heavy layers of snow from your roof using specially designed tools.

When you hold a snowball in your hand, it is light and fluffy. However, snow becomes very heavy when it accumulates in one place, such as your home’s roof. According to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, most roofs can only safely handle 20 pounds per square foot of snow. To put it in context, two or three days of consistent snow can result in up to 60 pounds per square foot on a roof. When this weight exceeds the safety limits, the supporting structures underneath your roof become strained and are capable of caving in or collapsing.
You likely won’t need snow shoveling services every time it snows. If you keep an eye on the accumulation of snow on your roof, you can likely judge the safety on your own. If a layer of snow more than a couple of inches thick accumulates on your home for any extended period of time, it is a good idea to have a professional snow removal team help you clear your roof.
The main reason that homeowners take advantage of Action Roofing’s professional snow removal services is to prevent collapses and catastrophic damage. However, there are a few other benefits that come from keeping your roof shoveled free of snow. The benefits of snow removal for your roof include:
