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.Read More →
