Be Prepared with a Roof Snow Removal Plan

Failing to have a roof snow removal plan is risky business. If a roof collapses under the weight of heavy snow, you could face significant building damage and lost productivity—or worse, your employees could suffer severe injury.

Please don’t risk it! Keep your building intact and your people safe by hiring GSM Roofing to expertly and safely remove snow from your commercial building’s roof. It’s a simple plan, but one that can prevent all kinds of complicated situations.

Goodbye Snow. Goodbye Liability. Hello, Peace of Mind!

Removing snow from roofs is different from shoveling sidewalks or plowing parking lots. Sending your maintenance crew onto the roof to remove snow is dangerous and can result in significant fines if you fail to follow OSHA fall protection regulations.

In-house maintenance crews can damage roofs because they’re not trained in how to remove snow; and that damage can void the roof’s warranty.

In-house maintenance workers are in danger of falling off the edge of your roof—mainly since the snow and ice will make surfaces more slippery. Hatches and access points may be entirely covered by snow, leaving your employees vulnerable to unexpected falls through the roof deck. Ladders can slip, and much more. The dreadful possibilities are practically endless, but avoidable.

The GSM Roofing team has the equipment, the safety apparatuses, and the know-how to safely remove snow from steep-slope and low-slope roofs of any size. The best way to avoid liability, being sued, injury, death, and roof damage is to leave roof snow removal to the professionals.

Take Roof Snow Removal Seriously, Before the Snow Arrives

It may be too late if you wait until snow accumulates on your roof to call around looking for snow removal. Take action before heavy snow has the opportunity to create more weight than your roof can bear.

The best course of action is to prepare before heavy snowfall damages the roof. You can do that with a roof snow removal plan from GSM Roofing. This plan includes a comprehensive checklist that will determine high-impact snow removal areas, identify potential hazards, and name the best OSHA-compliant safety equipment for roof snow removal.

Will you be prepared for the upcoming winter? Do you want peace of mind? Are you ready to avoid liability and ensure that your employees are safe, with their feet on the ground?

Then get in touch with the roof snow removal experts at GSM Roofing. We’ll look at your building, establish a plan, and quote a price for removing snow. It’s that easy.

I did get a chance to inspect the roof of this church last week. There was no damage to the roof, it is actually in quite good condition since it was installed in the late 80's or early 90's. The leaks they are experiencing are at the flashing transitions to the stone masonry and one at a brick masonry chimney.

But I did want to tell you that I was very impressed with Austin, the young fellow that ran the lift for me. I am not sure I have ever had such a smooth and accurately-placed ride. It wasn't the highest roof I ever had to look at, and maybe the equipment rental was newer, but still, it was refreshing to see the competence of that young fellow.
