Snow Guards Expertly Installed on Homes & Businesses in Silver Spring, MD
When the snow starts to fall in Silver Spring, Maryland, it brings certain hazards including slick roads and walkways. However, while you know to take precautions to avoid these hazards, there is one that you may not be aware of—snow avalanches off your roof. Indeed, after snow has piled up on your roof during a storm, temperature fluctuations may cause it to form a solid sheet of ice. And, when this happens, it’s not uncommon for it to slide off your roof all at once, damaging your roof, eaves, gutters, and landscaping, and potentially harming people entering or exiting your property. Fortunately, you can avoid destructive snow avalanches by turning to Roland Slate Service Company to install snow guards.
When to Have Snow Guards Installed on Your Property
Snow avalanches are most common on metal roofing systems. This is because, compared with many other materials, metal roofs tend to absorb less heat. This is great for energy efficiency; however, it can also create a thin layer of ice to melt under a pile of built-up snow, causing it to suddenly slide off the roof. For this reason, snow guards are recommended for all residential and commercial metal roofing systems in areas that experience heavy snowfall. However, other roofing materials certainly aren’t immune to snow avalanches, and snow retention systems can be a wise investment for any property.
