Roof Snow Removal in Lancaster County, Chester County, Delaware County and Nearby

Roof Rake in Norristown

Raking the snow off of roofing can prevent ice damming and is good to dig out solar electric panels if you have them. 

Getting the snow off your home's roof can be a very dangerous task. It can help to prevent ice dams from forming and to dig out windows or skylights and solar panels. 

When snow is heavy snow and ice can add weight to the roof which can be hazardous especially for older roofing, flat roofs and low-slope pitch roofing. Depending on how wet the snow is it can weigh between 1 and 21 lbs. per cubit foot!

We Remove Snow Safely Without Damage

Our trained crews work from the ground when we can because we know the dangers. We very carefully use snow rakes which are long rakes that knock the snow down and off the roofing.

We remove a little snow at a time to avoid being hit by snow and ice that falls down. Because we're experts in roofing we're very careful to not hit or dislodge shingles, gutters and other roof elements also.

When we need to we work from the roof using safety gear to locate all roofing elements so we know what work needs to be done and to avoid damaging the roof.

Contact us before the snow comes and we can help prepare your roofing should you have any concerns also.

Snow on a Roof Can Lead to Ice Damming

Snow Removal Dangers on a Roof:

  • Injury from falling snow & ice
  • Tools or ladder falling off the roof
  • Overexertion
  • Falls off the roof
  • Falling or tripping on hidden roof elements

Usually snow isn't a huge issue on roofing but when the roof is subjected to extreme temperatures over the attic and under the eaves, that's when issues can start. Those areas are usually the most susceptible to water leaks and ice damming.

The reason is that when snow melts on the upper parts of the roofing, it comes down by the roof eaves. When the eave is as a freezing temperature, the water freezes. This happens in many layers and builds up a dam of ice, which is where the name comes from. 

Eventually water comes behind the dam (remember those temperature differentials) and a pool of water sits there. That water gets higher and creeps under shingles, into small holes and presents itself as a leak in your ceiling or wall. 

For eaves that have eave flashing, ice dams aren't usually an issue. Feel free to ask us any questions about it.
