The snow must definitely be removed from commercial roofs! When snow accumulates in large quantities on the roof, it can cause different problems, even to the resistance structure. Icicles formed on gutters and water infiltration is other inconveniences that you may experience if you do not clean the snow on time from your roof.
In the case of commercial buildings with flat roofs, it is recommended to turn to professional roof cleaning services, because the task requires a very large volume of work, and snow and ice can make the surface slippery and dangerous to stand on.
Besides hiring specialized Colorado Springs commercial roofing contractors to remove the snow from your commercial roof, you must also make sure that your roof is properly insulated. A flat roof does not have a typical attic, so the heat rising from indoors can warm it up quickly, melting the snow, which is likely to refreeze and become ice.
Flat roofs are more susceptible to water leaks throughout the winter, precisely because of snow accumulations that melt slowly and maintain moisture on the roof for a long time. Additionally, it favors ice build-up in the drainage system, clogging it.
Additionally, when it snows heavily, do not underestimate the pressure put by snow on the structure of the roof!
