Yes, snow is all white and beautiful until your roof starts caving in and water starts dripping into your home. At Minnesota Leafless Gutters, we aren’t trying to be grinches.

If snow is on your roof, let our experts safely and professionals remove it quickly.
Why is Snow OnTthe Roof Not Good?
While we all love that picture perfect snowfall, no one will enjoy their roof caving in. When most people think of snow, they see a white, fluffy, light and dreamy picture in their mind. However, snow is quite heavy. In general, one square foot of snow that’s only one inch in depth will weigh approximately a pound. So, let’s say your entire roof was covered with not one inch but twelve inches of snow! Depending on your roof size, that could be thousands of pounds of snow. Additionally, this does not include the possibility of an ice dam developing. As snow melts and refreezes, the edges of the roof can build what’s called ice dams. One cubic foot of an ice dam may weigh approximately 57 pounds. Just one! While roofs are built well in Minnesota, no roof is expected to be able to withstand that much year after year.
