Expert Safe Solutions and Tips For Roof Snow Removal By The Roof Kings In Quincyby PRC Agency PR
Every year thousands of do-it-yourself homeowners spend the holidays in the hospital due to rooftop snow removal accidents. OSHA warns that snow removal is not a simple do-it-yourself job, and can cause serious injuries or fatalities. But homes and businesses also risk roof damage and health and safety threats if they postpone this urgent task. That is why one local company, The Roof Kings - Quincy Ma Roofer, is educating the public about how to help ensure a safe winter and holiday season without calamity.
“Oftentimes leaks are hidden by snow as warmth from the attic melts the bottom layer,” observes Roof Kings owner Craig Galligan. “Soon the water has seeped into ceilings and walls, causing potentially toxic mold and damage to critical infrastructure like electrical wiring. Or it refreezes and creates ice dams that act like wedges to destroy your roof.”
That is why experts like Galligan always recommend roof snow monitoring and prompt removal, which saves time, money, and can potentially save lives. FEMA publishes a Snow Load Safety Guide which warns that neglecting to perform snow removal can lead to catastrophic roof failure and collapse. The average roof can only structurally withstand the weight of snow accumulation of around four feet. Meanwhile lesser amounts can wreak havoc with damage to shingles, roof flashing, and roof supports. But removal should be done by trained professionals, otherwise the removal process can also damage the roof.
“With snow removal, we realize time is of the essence,” says Galligan,” and we pride ourselves on punctuality, reliability, and outstanding customer service. We leave the work site cleaner than it was when we got there, and our team is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We treat every roof project as if we were doing it for our home, to keep our own loved ones safe.”
The Roof Kings also performs all other roof-related work, including on-site roof evaluation, maintenance, repair, or replacement. But Galligan and other contractors in the construction business emphasize the importance of reserving a contractor as soon as possible. Once a blizzard blankets the region, most reputable contractors are booked solid. They may want to assist homeowners, but cannot schedule their projects. A proactive approach is highly recommended by FEMA, because as the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That is especially true when tons of snow and ice dams are rapidly accumulating on the roof and weighing down gutter systems this winter.
