Roof Snow and Ice Dam Removal
Roof Snow Removal
If your house suffers from recurring ice dams and you need a short term solution you need to get the snow off of your roof. Roof snow removal can be a dangerous job and if it’s not done correctly ice dams can come back even worse and in ways that could potentially do even more damage. Moreover, an inexperienced roof shoveler can also cause a lot of damage to the roof system itself. Instead of putting yourself or your roof at risk let CNY Roof Cleaners do it.
Ice Dam Removal
Ice dam creation in the Central New York area is a combination between heat loss from your roof, snow accumulation and freezing temperatures. The ice at the end of your roof forms a dam, and the heat loss from the roof melts the snow and forms a pool of water above the dam. As this process continues the dam gets larger. Your roof can be properly installed and still leak if there’s a large ice dam. The pool of water behind the dam will cause the leak.
It is important to look up at the ceiling for water spots which will let you know if your roof is leaking. Also if this occurs contact your insurance company to let them know about a roof leak claim. In some instances the insurance company will pay a ice removal company to remove the ice to prevent any further damage. If a water leak is not taken care right away you might be in for some expensive problems. A very expensive problem that happens after a roof leak is the creation of mold in your attic or crawl space or the ceiling and or walls. This can be expensive and costly to remove. Preventative maintenance is key. Clear the snow and ice off your roof as soon as it comes.
