Any type of roof can only handle so much weight from the downward force of accumulated snow and ice during and after a snow storm before it and possibly the building partially or fully collapse. Snow load damage can occur for no other reasons than a storm dumps snow and ice in excess of what a roof has been designed to handle or snow and ice drift or slide in ways that put too much weight in spots on the roof. That said, snow load problems occur for other reasons that you can easily fix with the help of a roofing contractor:
Some older building were designed without taking snow load into consideration. Their roofs have the wrong pitch or contain inadequate materials. Additionally, as weather patterns change in regions over time, an older roof might need design updates or complete replacement so that it can handle new conditions. Sometimes a previous roofer failed to use high quality materials or made roof or drainage design or workmanship mistakes during a new construction build.
Whatever the case, our team of roofing experts at [BUSINESS NAME] have extensively studied the most recent methods for reducing snow load.
