Snow Removal Prevents Ice Dams
One of the greatest threats posed by snow accumulation in Chicago and Northwest Indiana is the formation of ice dams on rooftops. An ice dam is formed when heavy snowfall is left to sit on a rooftop. The warmth from inside the building, coupled with the possible temperature fluctuations of the air currents around it, causes the snow to melt from the bottom. This melt water then makes its way to the roof edge where cold air refreezes it. This ice slowly builds forming a dam that holds back more water, forming more ice, and the cycle continues until the weight of the ice dam causes a collapse of the roofing, or, possibly worse, it falls from the rooftop to the ground. These dams can easily weigh hundreds of pounds and do serious damage to anything, or anyone, below.
Chicago Flat Roof Company has been assisting clients in the prevention of ice dam formation for more than 15 years through our professional rooftop snow removal services. Our highly-trained technicians know the best methods and tools needed to remove the snow from your roof without causing damage to the roofing material. We understand the dynamics of snow accumulation and can safely and efficiently remove all of the material in a minimally intrusive fashion in far less time than an amateur. And remember, as with all of our services, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

Chicago is a city of tall buildings. Even many of the residential properties around the area are multi-unit, multistory structures. This makes snow removal around the region a dangerous proposition – especially for the do-it-your-self-er.

Why take a chance with your property and the potential liability that comes with doing a dangerous project? You could end up with far worse than snow accumulation.
