Roof Snow Removal – Ice Dam Prevention | Stamford, CT

Roof Snow Removal - Ice Dam Prevention | Stamford, CTEach year in Connecticut the rooftops of residential and commercial property owners get blanketed with thick layers of snow. Many property owners underestimate the dangers involved in having that tremendous amount of pressure from snowfall on their rooftops.

Based in Stamford, PLT Landscape Construction offers affordable and efficient roof snow removal services to residential and commercial property owners throughout the Fairfield County area and beyond!

Roof snow removal can be a very laborious and dangerous project and should not be left to someone who does not have the proper training or equipment to safely complete the service. PLT’s certified Stamford snow removal professionals understand the proper practices involved in extracting snow from any size and scope rooftop without causing any depreciation to the roofing structure.

Snow accumulation on the roof can lead to ice dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. When temperatures warm up after a heavy snowfall, it may be susceptible to ice dams and destructive water leaks.

Weather experts are predicting heavy snowfall in Connecticut this winter season and it is important for you to be prepared in order to reduce any potential damages. The heavy amount of pressure caused by snow can lead to leaks in your rooftop or in some cases, cause your entire rooftop to collapse.

Reasons to Hire a Commercial Snow Removal Company | Stamford, CT

Reasons to Hire a Commercial Snow Removal Company | Stamford, CTAs the summer months draw to an end, and the fall and winter seasons are quickly approaching, now is an opportune time for acquiring commercial snow removal services for your Fairfield County, CT property. Based in Stamford, PLT Landscape Contractors offers snow plowing and ice management services to all types of commercial businesses from small business to large throughout the Fairfield and New Haven county areas of Connecticut. Our team of snow removal experts are trained and proficient on all equipment and snow plowing or ice removal techniques. We have complied a list of reasons why it is important to begin the process of selecting and hiring a commercial snow removal company now, in order to keep your driveways, parking lots, and walkways accessible and safe for your customers and employees throughout the winter season.

  1. Our snow removal contractors will have increased visibility and your property will be fully assessable as we evaluate your property. If you hire a snow removal contractor before the first snow fall of the season, they will be able to more easily identify parking patterns and any potential obstacles or safety hazards before writing up a proposal for you to review. This will ensure that your parking and walking areas will be cleared in the most efficient way possible and without any delays.
  2. You will gain an understanding of the required manpower, equipment and amount of salt will be apportioned for the designated areas. Depending on the size of your lot, snow and ice removal can require the use of large trucks and specialized machinery. You want to be certain that your Connecticut snow removal contractor has the necessary tools and manpower to get the job done.
  3. You will ensure that you will receive a snow removal estimate that will suit your requirements. Snow removal companies in the Fairfield County area offer a variety of snow removal packages and prices. It is important to put time into doing research in order to locate a company that can fulfill your needs and will fall within your desired budget. There are many companies out there that may seem as if they are offering you a great deal, but in the end you will receive an inferior service, which may effect the operational efficiency and safety of your business.
  4. You will have additional time to check for references and ensure that the company is fully insured. It is common knowledge that companies that possess the required insurance to operate snow plowing services on your property may cost more than companies that do not. However, the risks that are related to snow and ice removal are far too high to take a chance on going with an under licensed and insured snow removal company. An established snow removal company should have a website or online presence where you can view reviews from previous clients.
  5. You will have time to prepare an emergency snow removal and ice management procedure. An established snow and ice removal contractor will be able to construct a detailed emergency snow removal plan for you. No matter what time of day or night it is, they will be on call with the necessary equipment and man power to ensure that the parking and walking areas of your business are clear and safe for your customers and employees.
