The Importance of Removing Snow from the Roofs of Commercial Buildings

The accumulation of snow can wreak havoc on your commercial or industrial roof. Here are a few benefits of snow monitoring and removal:

snow accumulation on flat roof

Avoid additional pressure on your roof assembly

One inch of wet, dense snow equals to 17.90kg/m2 (1.66 lbs/sq.ft). Heavy snowfall may result in a lot of extra weight on top of your roof. That mass is more likely to be unevenly distributed due to snowdrifts, roof projections or architectural elements. At some point the weight capacity of your roof may be stretched to the limit and your roof may start sagging and even collapse.

Minimize the impact of freeze and thaw cycles

Fluctuation in outside temperatures combined with your building's warmth may cause snow and ice on your roof to thaw and freeze repeatedly. This process may cause gradual deterioration of your roof surface due to water seeping into tiny cracks or weak points in the roof and then expanding once the temperature drops below freezing.

Prevent ice dams

Ridges of ice may form on your roof due to melting and refreezing. Those ice dams inhibit proper drainage of your roof and contribute to uneven weight distribution, generating a perfect storm for water intrusion.

Protect roof projections

Excessive snow and ice on your commercial roof may block access to HVAC units, exhaust vents and other essential features.

Avert safety issues and property damage

As we mentioned, dense snow and ice on your roof can get really heavy. When that weight falls from your roof unmanaged, it may cause severe injuries and damage below. It also poses slip and fall hazards for anyone accessing your facility's roof.

How Does Snow Monitoring Work

STEP 1: Plan
Your CentiMark representative will work with you to determine the needs of your building. This includes the number of snow monitors needed, the installation location and the snowfall history of your particular area.

STEP 2: Install
We will then install solar-powered, non-penetrating monitors to your roof safely and efficiently.

STEP 3: Monitor
The monitors are then ready to begin working immediately. The snow load on your roof will be monitored 24/7.

STEP 4: Alert
If the snow load approaches load-bearing capacity, you will be alerted along with our CentiMark snow removal crews. This provides you with quick response times and seamless communication.

STEP 5: Act
Our emergency service crew will be dispatched to remove the snow from your roof safely and professionally when and where you need it the most.
