Winter and snow go hand in hand in Minnesota. Let’s face it, you are going to have snow pile up on your roof. The depth of snow is an issue to homeowners, but if it is wet snow, it should be an even greater concern. While it may be beautiful to look at, what you should realize is that a layer of wet snow as little as one foot deep on your roof could mean thousands of pounds of extra stress! In addition, there is the very great danger of ice dams forming when snow remains on your roof for extended periods of time. Typical ice dams can create thousands of pounds of weight load in addition to the snow weight. Snow removal is a risky DIY project. Have it done correctly, and safely, by the experts at Minnesota Leafless Gutters.
Protect Your Minnesota Home from Ice and Snow
Snow showers can be pretty, but you probably don’t want one to happen inside your home because of a collapsed roof! Snow and ice dams will also cause leaking and damage to your fascia, siding, gutters, and roof shingles, resulting in what could be expensive repairs. You should act before the threat of damage becomes real. If you are tempted to remove the snow yourself, remember that getting on ladders and roofs is dangerous enough in dry conditions. Add snow and ice and you are asking for trouble. Also, your added weight, if you get on the roof to access the snow, could be all that’s needed to cause roof damage or collapse. Keep in mind, too, that many of the tools sold to homeowners to clear snow themselves are meant for dry, fluffy snow that doesn’t present the threat of damage wet snow does.
