When to Call for Roof Snow Removal
Some Massachusetts homeowners aren’t sure when they need to call for roof snow removal. As a very general rule, it’s a good idea to call as soon as there is six inches of snow accumulation on your roof. Although six inches of snow alone will not necessarily damage the structure, it can easily cause ice dams that lead to pooling water, which seeps underneath the roofing material.
At a bare minimum, snow should be removed once there is an accumulation of 12 inches or more. That depth of snow distributes thousands of pounds in pressure—more than enough to cause a weak roof to collapse. The snow can also damage whatever lays beneath as it slides off your roof.
What about low- or no-slope roofs? These roofs are even more susceptible to damage because they shed water slowly, and the snow doesn’t have anywhere to go. Left untouched, it’s likely that the snow will just continue to accumulate throughout the season. For those reasons, regular roof snow removal is highly recommended for these types of roofs.
