Maintaining your roof in winter

Snow loads can cause significant structural damage to a building, which can also damage the roof membrane.

These loads are rarely uniformly placed on the surface and vary according to wind exposure, the shape of the building and the location of the building.

The excessive accumulation of snow on a roof creates a potential danger of collapse.

Accumulated snow can overload the roof and affect the structure of a building.

In mild weather, as has been the case in recent years, rain mingles with snow.

The water accumulates on the layers of snow and increases the weight on the roof. During periods of frost, the excess ice layer expands and damages the perimeter of the building. The membranes around the perimeter become fragile and can even divide, causing significant damage. In order to avoid such a situation, it is recommended to remove the snow after a heavy accumulation of snow, rain and / or ice. It is imperial also to make a pipe on the roof in order to allow the water to go to the drains. Roofing Léon has put together a snow removal plan that allows its customers to protect their investment while relying on safety.

What is included:

  • Maintenance in complete safety without interruption
