Ice Dams & Roof Snow Removal

Almost completed roof snow removal 1; Snow and ice dams build up putting pressure on your roof and gutters causinig damage and leaks.Well, another day to wake up at zero degrees!  Folks, my phone has been ringing off the hook due to the snow and ice build up on our roof tops.  This is a SERIOUS matter and should be handled by a professional with experience.  Not only is getting on your roof dangerous in these current condtions, but further damage can also be caused during improper snow and ice removal.

Ice cycles in gutter; Snow and ice dams build up putting pressure on your roof and gutters causinig damage and leaks.Interior leaks are showing up frequently now in the houses I am visiting with snow and ice issues.  There are some measures we can take to help your situation.  Visit my webpage at http://www.leakyroofs.com/Ice-Dams---Roof-Snow-Removal.html for education on snow and ice and the havoc they play on your roof and gutters.

Friendly Roof Raking: Snow and ice dams build up putting pressure on your roof and gutters causinig damage and leaks.Picturesque snow-capped houses are charming, but don't be fooled by their delicate beauty. Snow has a great deal of weight, and that weight increases immensely when rain, ice and sleet are added to the mix. Two feet of snow on the average-sized roof can be the equivalent of 38,000 pounds, or 19 tons.  All of this weight puts stress on your roof and weakens its structure.  Complicating matters more, the melting of this mass can cause water seepage, which can rot roofs, destroy insulation, flood attics, ruin gutters and damage the interior of your home.
