Did You Know? Winter Roof Maintenance

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Monday, January 17th, 2011 at 10:37pm.

Snow and ice can wreak havoc on roofs in our extreme winter climate if not properly maintained. Snow accumulation as we’ve experienced already this season causes heavy snow loads on rooftops, which can lead to leaking and result in an unplanned home repair. Poorly installed or malfunctioning roof heating elements can result in ice dams, which also require immediate attention to prevent damage to your home.

You can avoid these scenarios by hiring a company to help to keep your property’s roof in shape during the winter season, whether as a one time evaluation and solution of a problem or contracted monthly throughout the winter months. Heating elements, such as heat tape, need to be strategically applied to the roof and vary from home to home due to architecture, where the sun faces the property among other factors. Ma Greene, a long time local snow and ice removal company, will evaluate and troubleshoot the home before recommending the best solution to address removal.

We want you to be able to enjoy your time in the mountains playing in the snow instead of having to deal with potential property damage because of the snow. That’s why we’ve compiled a list below of several companies in the area to consider for winter roof maintenance. A good rule of thumb for you, the homeowner, is to be certain the company you hire is insured in case any damage is caused under their supervision; they should also provide a service policy for any heat elements they install.
