Grand Rapids MI Roof Top Snow Removal Services
Now that old man winter has finally shown up here in the Grand Rapids MI area it is time to start thinking about the snow buildup that is happening on your roof top. Every year there are stories in the news about roofs collapsing due to the excess amount of snow that has piled up on the roof. Don’t let your home become a news story.
Here at Roof Cleaner we have been providing roof top snow removal services in the greater Grand Rapids Mi area for the last 6 years. We offer a onetime service as well as regularly scheduled cleaning throughout the winter season (we clean the roof after every 2” snowfall) to help keep your homes roof clear of snow and possibly ice buildup as well.
While roofs covered in fresh snow make a nice looking winter scene, all that freshly snow can lead up to problems. The snow starts to melt then re-freezes causing more stress on the roof of your home or business. How much snow and ice your roof can handle depends on a number of factors, like the roof type, pitch of the roof, age of the roofing material and the condition of the roof as well. Usually if more than a foot of snow and ice is on the roof, it is a good idea to have it removed.
Clearing the snow the first 3 to 4 feet of the roof after every snow fall with a roof rake will go a long way in helping to protect your home this winter from the formation of ice dams, which we will cover in the next blog.
If you are not comfortable removing the snow from your roof, we here at Roof Cleaner can do this job for you.
