Snow Retention Systems in Wautoma
A snow retention system helps to protect your roofing during the winter months. When snow and ice accumulate on the roof, gravity pulls them down and they’ll slide along the slope of the roof, causing a number of different problems. Snow retention systems hold that snow in place so that it won’t shed from the roofing until it’s melted.
Snow retention systems come in several different types of styles and designs, and they can be designed for both functionality and appearance. Functionally, these systems are designed for the different types of roofing materials that are used on home in the Wautoma area. Aesthetically, they’re designed to coordinate with different architectural styles and the personal preferences of homeowners.
The professional Wautoma roofers at Goody’s Roofing Contractors can help you decide on the perfect model of snow retention for your home, then we can install it perfectly so that you’re as protected as possible.
Benefits of Snow Retention Systems
- Help avoid costly insurance claims due to an avalanche of snow and ice
- Help prevent ice dams at the edge of the roof
- Help prevent damage to gutters
- Many styles and designs available to fit any number of different roofs
Snow retention systems are used to protect landscaping around the building, to protect gutter systems around the edge of the building, and to keep snow from piling up either on a lower roof level or on decks, sidewalks, and at garage entrances.
Do You Need a Snow Retention Device for Your Roof?
Whether or not you need a snow retention system is largely dependent on what type of roofing material you have on your Wautoma home. For example, if you have asphalt roofing, it probably has enough grip to keep to hold on to the snow. As long as the slope is moderate, most asphalt shingle roofs do not need any kind of snow retention system.
A metal roof, on the other hand, has a very smooth surface, so the snow has very little to grip onto and will begin to slide off, even if the slope of the roof is very low.
The “pitch” of your roof is another thing to consider. Put simply, the pitch is the relative steepness of your roof’s slope. A higher pitched roof has a steeper angle, so it will need more help keeping snow from running off.
