Snow Load Challenges in Moorhead?

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

A large red snow removal device is being used to remove snow from a roof. We mitigate water damage in Glyndon 24-hours a day.

Snow Load Challenges

I never knew there were so many techniques for removing snow from roofs until I watched a series of YouTube videos on the subject. There were people using lengths of rope or wire to saw the snow off the roof and some people in Japan were using devices that look like upside-down folding chairs to pick up big stacks of snow and dump them off the roof. SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year, and we understand the challenges heavy snow and the winter months bring to Moorhead residents.

According to an article published by the University of Minnesota Extension (UMN), knowing the snow load your home is built to is important. If your home is built to current codes, there should be no problem, and your roof should be able to carry snow loads. The article relates that in Minnesota, building plans are required to meet snow load specifications in order to receive a building permit, so you can check with the city building inspection office to see if your house plans are on file.
