ROOF RAKE

WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO USE A ROOF-RAKING SERVICE

Although icicles, snow and other winter wonders make the Owatonna area’s winters spectacular, they can pose a threat to your safety as well as the structural integrity and strength of your roof and home. Roof raking can help prevent injury and damage to your home. Here are some reasons to call us today to get a quote for roof raking services.

  1. MELTING SNOW CAUSES A FLOOD OF ISSUES
    Snow doesn’t stay frozen for ever. Snow on your roof can melt and form tiny streams of water which can become ice. This is why it matters. The melting snow expands when it refreezes. This means it pushes upwards from the gutters and crevices of your roof. This can lead to damage and weak spots.

Snow ice dams are also created when snow melts. This happens when water runs off the roof and freezes. This causes solid ice, which acts as a dam or shelf and allows snow to build up around it. This can increase the risk of water freezing and cause serious damage if water gets under your shingles.

If left untreated, snow accumulation on your roof can cause damage that could cost thousands of dollars due to cracks or leaks. Also, melting snow can cause damage to roof vents, electrical cables, eaves, or your attic.

  1. SNOW CAN BE A HEAVY BURN
    Snow can cause ice dams or refreezing damage. It also adds weight to your roof as it accumulates. When snow is still fluffy, it weighs in at about 25% of a square foot. For every square foot of snow it covers, wet snow can add almost a pound and a half. Your roof must be able to support quite a bit of weight. This extra weight can lead to multiple vehicles being parked on your roof.

The weight of this material can have a negative impact on the lifespan of your roof. However, it can also cause damage to your garage, carport, or shed roofs.

  1. PREVENTION IS WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD
    Too many homeowners wait for a problem to develop before they act. Roof raking can be a proactive method to protect your roof and keep it structurally sound.

Roof raking can be quick and inexpensive and save you money on roof repairs, gutters and other roof structures.

It is possible to prevent snow damage and ice damage from your roof by having it raked.
