Snow removal specialists for all your roofing needs with Roof Time Manchester
With temperatures rivalling those of the Arctic Circle, and large parts of the UK blanketed with record levels of snowfall, the backbone of Britain has been creaking for several days with various industries reaching breaking point.
Utilities have been hugely affected with water pipers freezing and bursting, and energy providers experiencing service disruptions and power cuts as the country counts the cost of the coldest winter in 30 years.
Another highly affected area is roof tops of houses and businesses, with many buckling under the weight and pressure of snow and the big freeze.
The weight of several inches of snow and icy layers could cause a roof to bend in ways it shouldn't - and shifts in temperature could make the matter worse.
With the mercury fluctuating between above and below zero, water starts to freeze back up which can push up slates and get between the sheeting of your roof. This can lead to bowing, and even leaking inside your house.
If your roof is still under pressure from heavy snowfall, or if you feel the adverse weather conditions have damaged your roofing structure, call Roof Time today.
Clearing a few feet of snow from the edge of your roof should be good enough to protect your home but standing on your roof to get the job done is not recommended.
Another option is a long rake to reach onto your roof and drag the snow away, but if you're ever in doubt of the safety of what you're doing, you might want to just call a professional to do the work instead.
Roof Time is a South Manchester based company with over ten years experience in all things roofing, from snow removal to designing and building cleverly crafted loft conversions - providing high quality customer service throughout.
