Snow removal from roofs

Snow removal from the roof is the process of removing accumulated snow from the roof surface of a building. This is done to prevent the weight of the snow from causing structural damage or collapse.

Excessive snow accumulating on the roof can significantly increase the weight load on the roof. This extra weight can potentially cause structural damage or even roof collapse. Clearing snow from the roof reduces the risk of roof collapse, protecting both the building and its occupants.

Why is snow removal from the roof necessary?

  • Snow that accumulates on the roof can melt and refreeze, forming ice dams. In addition, dangerous icicles, which are a threat to pedestrians walking on the light traffic road. Ice dams on the roof can prevent normal water drainage from the roof, causing water leaks, possible damage to the roof, walls and insulation. Timely removal of snow helps prevent the formation of ice dams on the roof.

  • Snow can build up in gutters and downspouts, preventing water from draining. If it is not cleaned, this trapped water can freeze, which can damage the rainwater pipes and the building materials around them. Snow removal from the roof ensures water drains through the gutters, preventing possible damage

  • When the snow melts, it turns into water. At zero temperatures, which are common in our climate, freezing and thawing occur. If water gets between the cracks of the roof material, the water expands when it freezes, and as a result, greater damage occurs to the roof material. If the roof is not properly cleared of snow, the melted snow can seep through the cracks and cause water damage inside the building, for example: ceilings, walls and electrical systems. Snow removal helps prevent potential water damage.

  • It is important to note that snow removal from the roof can be dangerous and should be done by trained professionals. Safety should always be a priority and precautions should be taken to avoid falling off the roof or damaging the roofing material.

  • Snow removal from the roof is important in order to maintain the structural integrity of the building, prevent water damage and ensure the safety of the residents.
