Roof snow removal is an essential component of commercial and residential building management and can help preserve the integrity of the entire structure. While a flat roof offers many advantages, during Saskatchewan winters, it can become a repository for snow, leading to these and other issues:
- Cracks and crevices caused by ice damming
- Buckling of the roof’s joints and trusses
- Leaks resulting from ponding during the melting season
- Buckling and bowing walls and beams
- Safety concerns caused by icicles
- A collapsed roof
When is roof snow removal necessary?
The maximum weight a roof can support depends on the snow conditions. For fresh snow, 10-12” is equal to 1” of water and weighs approximately 2.3 kg/sq ft. A roof can typically support a maximum of 4 ft of fresh snow. When compacted, 3-5” is equal to 1” of water, and 1” of ice is the same as 12” of fresh snow. Essentially, it’s vital to be mindful of accumulation on the roof – especially of ice.
