Snow Can Cause Serious Roof Problems

When winter arrives, it brings with it something we all love, sometimes, snow. While a blanket of snow may look beautiful, a buildup of snow on your roof can cause severe damage and even collapse if not removed properly. That’s especially true for flat or low-sloped roofs in commercial and residential buildings.

At Ledegar Roofing in La Crosse, Wisconsin, we understand the importance of proper snow removal and are here to ensure the safety and longevity of your roof.

Benefits Of Snow Removal

Removing snow from your roof not only prevents damage but can also save you money in the long run. Collapsed roofs or water damage can be expensive to repair or even require a full replacement. By removing snow and ice promptly, you can avoid costly repairs and extend the lifespan of your roof.

Why Snow Removal Is Critical

Snow accumulation can put a lot of weight on your roof, putting strain on the building’s structural integrity and leading to collapses, especially in older buildings or those with pre-existing damage. Melting and refreezing snow can also cause ice dams, which can prevent proper drainage and lead to leaks and water damage inside the building.
