Snow Removal

importance of Roof Snow Removal

It’s no surprise to anyone living in the New Hampshire or Seacoast region see large amounts of snow each year. Although we’re accustomed to seeing our roads and driveways cleared of snow, we often neglect our roofs in the winter, which can lead to harmful accumulations that eventually lead to roofing issues

Roof Shoveling

In the worst case, snow accumulation can lead to roof collapse, but even just six inches of snow can put hundreds of pounds of pressure onto your roof. A foot of snow can add thousands! This added weight puts immense stress on your roof, so making sure to clear your roof will keep it and the home it covers safe, even in the heaviest of snowstorms.

Have questions about keeping your roof clear in the winter?

ice dams

Ice dams occur when snow accumulation covers your roof’s ventilation system, allowing heat to build up in your attic, warming your roof decks and melting snow from the bottom up. As the snow melts, water runs down to your gutters where it re-freezes, ice accumulates, and eventually backs up, dripping water under your roofing system, soaking the walls and ceilings inside your home. Once this happens, your repairs will be extensive and expensive.

In addition to roof shoveling, which will help prevent ice dams, J. Carnes & Son offers complete roofing system inspections where we’ll fully assess your home to ensure it has proper ventilation and insulation to avoid harmful ice dams before they happen.

Outstanding communication! Emails from multiple members of this team regularly throughout the process. Text messages notifying me of important emails. Accurate quotes that did not change. Got us on the schedule fast. They Showed up on time and were done before 4pm. Great clean up! It was like they were never here…other than the new roof!
