For many NJ residents, their home is the largest single investment. Homeowners do everything they can to protect their investment. They guard against risks that could put a home in jeopardy. They invest in high-quality roofing, siding and other materials that help to resist high winds and heavy precipitation.
In the winter, there’s often snow and ice to contend with. Nor’easters sometimes bury northern New Jersey homes under feet of snow. Winds may whip the snow into drifts many feet deep, even on rooftops. Sometimes, this snow is very wet and heavy. Subsequent rainstorms may saturate the snow to make it even heavier.
In some situations, snow may stress residential roofs to the point of collapse. An AccuWeather post sums it up well, “Heavy snow can pose a serious risk to roofs and cause some to collapse, creating dangerous conditions.” These dangerous conditions call for roof snow removal to be performed by a professional.
