Removing built-up snow from a roof is vital to protecting the integrity of your home. In fact, excess snow can put your roof in danger of collapsing. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety, the average roof can only handle a weight of about 20 pounds per square foot of snow. It may seem as though it could take a while for such a significant amount of snow to accumulate, but just a few days of consistent precipitation can lead to as much as 60 pounds per square foot of snow.
Having snow removed from your roof can also help protect your home from moisture damage. When the ice and snow on your roof starts to melt, it flows into the gutters. Once it settles, it may refreeze and cause your gutters to clog. As more snow melts, the clogged gutters will force the water to travel under your shingles and drip through your ceiling.
There are several observations we make to determine when snow removal is necessary for your home. One way is by observing whether or not there is ice buildup on your roof. We take this particular sign very seriously, as ice tends to weigh more than snow. Interior water damage is also a telltale sign that immediate action should be taken. We look for issues such as brown wall stains, spots on the ceilings, and cracks in your drywall.
