Snow gets heavier as it sits. This is because it is made of frozen moisture and as it slowly melts down it becomes more compact and heavier. Additional snow fall keeps the underlying melted snow as ice and the process continues until it is either removed or temperatures heat up enough to melt it all away.
Unfortunately, roofs can only hold so much weight before they cave in. Also, the whole process of snow fall and melting into ice then melting away to water, all works together to wear down and abuse the materials of the roof. Over time the roof gets worn before it should.
Commercial property owners are responsible for the safety of their employees, tenants, visitors, and customers. If your property has a build up of snow and/or ice on the roof, it can be dangerous for anyone at the location.
Don’t gamble with the safety of your customers or tenants, let us come and assess your roof and provide you with a plan to remove the snow before it causes serious risk.
We use only safe methods to remove your snow problem. Calcium chloride costs three times more than rock salt and can create a residue that can harm shoes, flooring and pets. Calcium magnesium acetate costs even 10 times more than rock salt but doesn’t do well in low temperatures under about 25 degrees F. Sodium Chloride is rock salt and doesn’t do well in low temperatures either.
Commercial roofs are designed with different standards than residential roofs. Different pitches, such as a flat roof, are common with commercial buildings. With older buildings, the roofs may not be designed to withstand the amount of weight from heavy snow or ice.
If you have a commercial property and need Commercial Roof Snow Cleaning, you will need a professional like us here at Brian C. Jackson & Son LLC to inspect the roof and give you an estimate on what it will take to remove the snow and ice and keep your customers safe.
Often, commercial property owners will put heaters in attic spaces for flat ceiling buildings, but this is not recommended because of the fire danger and the likely hood that it makes little difference because enough heat can’t be generated. Melting the snow creates more ice, which in turn creates more weight. For flat roofs, removal is the only recommended solution.
