❄️❄️❄️❄️ ❄️ Winter is here! ❄️❄️❄️❄️

The winter weather has finally arrived and can damage your home. There are a few methods we use to prevent damage from happening. ??

Snow loads that are too heavy for your roof to handle can cause damage to sheathing, rafters or trusses. When snow loads exceed 6”- 8” and more snow is predicted, it is recommended to have the snow removed from your homes eavelines. Winter warm ups and re-freezing can cause ice damming which will cause leaks in your homes interior, and removing the snow from the eavelines will prevent this.

We offer a few different options for snow removal and winter maintenance. We apply calcium chloride to eavelines and gutters which will help with melting ice and this chemical is also harmless to your roof, plants and shrubs. The calcium chloride in your gutters will help the waterflow to continue and avoid water and ice from backing up under your shingles.
