Snow and Ice Removal

Snow and Ice Removal from your roof is an important part of protecting your building from water damage and heavy snow loads during the long winter season in The Twin Cities of Minnesota.  You may have noticed long icicles hanging from your gutters and not realize the significance of the damage that may be occurring behind them. Icicles are usually one of the first warning signs of possible ice dams on your roof.  Snow and ice removal is vital to maintaining your property and no one knows how to care for your roof better than Englund Roofing & Sheet Metal.

What causes ice dams

An ice dam occurs when ice forms along the bottom slope of your roof.   When an ice dam develops, the water then backs up behind the ice which can leak into your business and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and more. 

Ice dams are usually caused by heavy snowfall and improper ventilation in the attic. Inadequate ventilation allows warmer air to build up inside your attic melting the snow directly above it which then re-freezes once it reaches the colder lower overhang and gutter areas.  At Englund Roofing and Sheet & Metal we specialize in commercial roofing.  Contact us today to schedule an onsite evaluation of your building for ice formation or ventilation concerns.

How can I remove an existing ice dam?

Immediately removing snow and ice from your roof eliminates the key components that create ice dams.  However, removing an ice dam can be quite dangerous if you don't know how, don’t risk damage to your roof or your own personal injury.  We use a professional steamer for removal.  Contact Jimmy at Englund Roofing & Sheet Metal for all your snow and ice removal needs.
