Commercial Roofing Solutions for New England Winters

Resources // Renovation // December 29, 2020

When it comes to New England winters, you know you will get some cold weather, icy days, and snow. How much snow, is always the big question. Some years the snow barely coats the ground, and other years the snow keeps falling and falling. Your commercial roofing system represents a large investment, not to mention its role in protecting everything under your roof. Therefore, you need a roofing company that is experienced in the area and that can handle the snowiest winters. No matter how large your roofing system, we have the expertise to service your needs.

How Much Snow Is Too Much?

When snow builds up on your roof, it adds a lot of weight. In extreme circumstances, that weight can cause damage to various parts of your roofing system. It could even cause a roof collapse. To provide you with piece of mind, our technicians help you keep an eye on your roof during a tough New England winter. They know what signs to look for after a big snow:

  • Snow that is rich in moisture content
  • Structures that sag and bend
  • Cracks around doors and windows  

No matter the time of year, we can come out and do an assessment of your roof. If the weight of the snow is a concern, we can take measures to protect the structural elements of your building.

What Roofing Services Are Necessary?

Regular maintenance is the best way to avoid costly, emergency roof repairs. This will help you steer clear of roof leaks, structural damage, and mold. It will also help extend the lifespan of your roof. A proactive schedule of repairs and inspections by an experienced team allows you to plan and budget for normal roof repairs. It also helps you prepare for the time when a replacement roof is needed.
