Roof Snow Removal Services
Wet snow is heavy and can put pressure on your residential or commercial roof. If there is too much pressure, it can cause damage to the roof or in extreme cases, even cause it to collapse. It is especially important to remove snow from flat roof surfaces, such as on porches and sunrooms, since they do not clear as quickly as a pitched roof. Cleaning the snow off your roof, gutters and eaves after a winter storm can prevent problematic ice dams from forming. Having ice dams removed can be extremely expensive, so your best bet is to prevent them from happening in the first place by keeping your roof cleared from heavy snow.
The process of snow removal can be dangerous and is best left to experienced professionals with the proper equipment. Give Boelter a call and we will remove the snow from your roof safely and efficiently!
Ice Dam Prevention
An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can accumulate on the edge or valleys of a roof as well as the eaves when piled up snow melts slowly and refreezes to form ice. Ice dams can cause problems when they prevent melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. If water from melting snow backs up behind the ice, water can leak into your home or business and cause serious damage to walls, ceilings, insulation and other areas.
Ice dam removal is difficult and you could cause serious harm to your shingles, gutters or eaves by having them removed or attempting to do so yourself. Hire the professionals at Boelter for roof snow removal and save yourself time and money in the long run by preventing ice dams from forming in the first place.
