A roof collapse can certainly happen any time of the year, but more often than not they occur in the frigid winter months when the snow accumulations are so heavy. For this reason it is important to make certain your roof is in good enough condition to withstand all the elements all year round, and especially in the midst of the winter season. Regardless of what type of roofing you have, rest assured our expert teams are here to provide you with all your Watertown roofing needs.
Snow related roof collapses are typically caused by excessive amounts of snow accumulation on a rooftop, regardless of what type of roofing it may be. A single cubic foot of snow weighs near to 7 pounds and when the snow is packed and topped with ice as well will weigh much more. In addition, should it rain, sleet, or hale these forms of precipitation will definitely compound the already existing problem if the moisture from the precipitation is absorbed into the roof.
At Milliken’s Roofing we are committed and dedicated to providing all our valued clients with top of the line products and services for all their Watertown roofing needs. Our highly trained and experienced roofers and specialists are here to offer insight and direction when it comes to avoiding a roof collapse.
What are the Major Warning Signs of a Potential Collapse?
All roofs are susceptible to collapse, however, flat roofs and lower sloped roofs tend to be at a greater risk since they are able to accumulate far greater amounts of snow, ice, and other precipitation as well. With that said, it is important to be aware of any warning signs of a potential roof collapse and should you notice any of them, be certain to contact our experienced roofers as quickly as possible so that we can address your roofing problems immediately and provide an effective resolution to the problem at hand.
