Snow Raking Services for Residential Roofs in Minnesota
Every year, the newspapers tell us disheartening stories of homeowners and untrained workers who fall from rooftops while trying to remove heavy accumulations of snow. Sadly, many of these accidents cause serious injuries or death.
Snow removal, however, may be advisable to prevent the formation of ice dams and to remove snow from solar collectors and roof windows. During periods of extremely heavy snowfall, snow and ice build-up may exceed the load capacity of your roof, especially older roofs that are flat or have low-slope pitches. Some snowfall can weigh between 1 and 21 lbs. per cubic foot, depending upon moisture content!
To avoid injury, it's best you have a professional remove snow from your roof. Trinity Exteriors, Inc offers professional snow removal services for roofs all throughout the greater Twin Cities metro area. We offer snow removal cost estimates throughout the Greater Twin Cities Metro Area!
Remove Snow Without Damaging Your Shingles
We work from the ground whenever possible, carefully using long snow rakes that resemble garden hoes. Our workers are instructed to remove small amounts of snow at a time to avoid being hit by falling snow or ice. We are particularly careful to avoid dislodging roof shingles and gutters. If it is necessary to work from the roof, proper safety gear is used to prevent accidents and care is taken to locate skylights, dryer vents, and roof vents beforehand.
With our snow and ice dam removal services, you can avoid potential roof snow removal dangers such as:
- Falling snow and ice may cause injury
- Injury from snow rake that falls from roof
- Falling off a ladder
- Ladder sliding away
- Slipping off roof
- Tripping due to unseen, buried roof penetrations, like vent stacks
- Falling through unseen, buried skylight or roof window
Our snow removal methods ensure the safety of our workers and won’t damage your roof. Contact us before the snow begins to fall so we can map your roof and inspect the shingles and gutters. With this preparation, we can more effectively handle snow removals when the need arises.
