Raking or brushing snow from rooftops can help prevent ice dam formation and clear solar electric panels.
When snowfall is very heavy, both snow and ice can build up and create a heavier load on your roofing than is allowed. This tends to happen especially on older, flat or low-pitch roofing. Sitting snow can also be a conduit for ice dam formation, which can force water into gaps which can then cause leaking into the home and surrounding materials. These are all why you need to remove snow from your roofing, especially with larger snow and ice totals.

Snow removal can be downright dangerous if it's not done correctly. Many people try and unfortunately slip off the roof, step through a skylight, or get heavy snow and ice falling on them. Our professionals can safely remove snow from your roofing though following a storm.
Our crews safely work from the ground as much as possible and carefully use long snow removal rakes. We remove small amounts of snow at a time so we don't get hit by sheets of falling snow or ice. Since we're in the industry, we're also very careful not to knock roofing shingles and gutters.
If we have to go onto the roof, we use appropriate safety gear to prevent accidents and care is taken to locate all skylights, dryer vents, and roof vents beforehand. Our snow removal process makes sure our workers are safe and that your roof won't be damaged.
