Each year we hear stories of homeowners in the area who get seriously injured while trying to remove heavy accumulations of snow from their roof. Snow and ice dams can cause thousands of pounds of stress on your roof. After a large snowfall, it’s best to call in trained experts to keep your family and your home safe. Here are our top three reasons to hire a professional roofer for snow removal this winter:
Proper Equipment: Clearing the first three to four feet of snow from your roof can help prevent ice dams from forming. A hardware store roof rake will not cut it! Our team is trained to remove roof snow safely so that your shingles and gutters are not damaged.
Prevent Ice Dams: During periods of heavy snowfall, snow and ice build-up may exceed the load capacity of your roof. Some snow-fall can weigh between 1 and 21 lbs. per cubic foot! Above All Roofing has proven processes in place to remove ice dams and prevent them from forming throughout the season.
Local Service: Every job is completed by our highly trained local team members who are experts in the industry. We only hire the best because we know that each and every team member reflects on the entire company. We communicate with our clients every step of the way, from your first estimate to after the job is done.
Snow removal can be very dangerous and we do not recommend trying this yourself. Using a ladder in snowy and icy conditions can be extremely unsafe and is best left to professionals. You can depend on the Above All Roofing team to give you an honest quote and provide quality workmanship you can trust. Call us today for a free assessment of your roof and ask about our continued removal maintenance throughout the winter season.
