Roof Snow and Ice Dam Removal

After a heavy snowfall, the excessive buildup of snow can cause your roof to warp and in extreme cases, even collapse. The most common form of damage occurs when snow melts and then refreezes at the base of your roof. This is referred to as ice damming, which can lead to trapped water underneath the shingles and water leakage through the roof deck and nail holes.

Two feet of snow on your roof can range from 6lbs per square foot for dry snow to 42lbs per square foot for wet heavier snow. This is equal is thousands of extra pound on your roof resulting in weakening and eventually structual damage on your roof. Roof snow that is exposed to sunlight soften and become denser then it harden when the temperature drops below zero overnight.
