Many consider commercial roof snow removal in Chicago as an afterthought and they do not realize its importance until it’s too late. We recommend that you clean the roof for every 6 inches of snowfall. Of course, the exact safe load calculations can only be done after taking into account multiple factors associated with the current roof.
Commercial and Residential buildings suffer alike from snow accumulation. In many worst-case scenarios, both types of roofs can collapse under the load of the snow. Make sure that you do not delay when it comes to removing snow from your roof.
In winter, snowfall in the U.S. can continue for several months. The roof of your building takes the full brunt of the snowfall and, over time, the amount of snow collected on the roof increases, thereby increasing the load on the roof. Roof Snow Removal Service removes the snow build-up from the roof.
An Ice Dam is a ridge-like structure that forms along the edge of a roof. It gets its name from the fact that the ridge acts as a dam and prevents the snow from draining off the roof. Melted ice can freeze again or seep into the roof, causing leaks and, over time, they can damage the roof.
The roof, like any structure, has a limit on the load that it can carry. Dry snow is light and won’t damage the roof unless there is a large amount of it. However, wet snow is many times heavier than dry snow of the exact same volume. Roof cleaning gets rid of the excess weight, load and, as a bonus, the snow on the roof.
Based on the slope of the roof, snow accumulation and the method of cleaning also changes. For example, flat roofs are more susceptible to collecting snow and are more prone to collapsing. However, they are more accessible and easier to clear.
Sloped roofs can withstand more snowfall as the snow starts to slide off with new snow coming in. However, they are less accessible and require special tools for snow removal.
Commercial snow removal can be tricky based on the slope of the roof and the type of roof. Having a thick layer of snow or ice dam makes it even more complicated. In such conditions, what you need is the right people and the right tools and, when you choose services from Gold Standard Commercial Roofing, you get both!
Our team of experts has been in the field for years. They are well equipped to handle any sort of situation that may arise during the process and, depending on the type and slope of the roof, the cleaning process also changes.
