If you live in a region known for its harsh winters, you’re already familiar with the challenges that heavy snowfall presents. But traffic delays and snowed-in homes aren’t the only things you should be worrying about, especially if you own commercial or industrial property with flat roofing. These roofs can quickly be buried under snow.
Large quantities of snow can be surprisingly heavy, causing serious problems with roofing. Some roofs exposed to heavy snowfall fail and collapse, while others may suffer water damage due to melting snow. In any event, there are several reasons to monitor a roof’s snow load through a custom roof snow removal plan from Safe Roof Systems, an industry leader in roof deflection monitoring technologies.
1. Safety. When you monitor a roof’s snow loads closely, you’ll be alerted to potential issues well before they have the chance to affect your employees’ or customers’ safety.
2. Efficiency. Not sure when to begin shoveling? You’ll know when it’s time when you add a roof snow alarm system to your property, saving you hours of frustration.
3. Peace of mind. With a roof snow monitoring system installed, you’re released from the responsibility of monitoring snow buildup yourself. Now you’re free to pursue other essential tasks in your day-to-day routine.
Any kind of business building can benefit from a roof snow removal plan. It’s worth your time to prepare for snow before it arrives and causes roof problems.
