Snow & Ice Removal
With average annual snow accumulation of up to 54 inches, winter in Minnesota can become especially problematic for your roof. Large amounts of snow and ice dams can breech roof materials, resulting in subsequent leaks and water damage to the home; and most people cannot simply grab a broom and hop onto their roof to clean it.

Trying to remove snow and ice on your own can result in some unexpected accidents and injuries. Leave it to the professionals at Keyprime Roofing and Remodeling to remove any dangerous or bothersome snow and ice from your roof without damaging shingles.

Ice Dam Removal
Snow accumulation on your roof can lead to ice dams, which are a common problem for homeowners who live in areas where snow is common. Ice dams form when the roof snow melts from the heat of the home, collects in the gutter, and then freezes when the outside air chills the water. This creates a dam of ice that prevents the gutters from effectively funneling water away from the house. Instead, it will overflow and rise under shingles and possibly leak into your home. Water can also become so heavy that it collapses gutters, overhangs, and even damage sections of your roof.
Avoid unnecessary water damage repairs by letting Keyprime remove any ice dams this winter. We’ll safely and effectively remove ice from your gutters so when spring comes, your gutters can do their jobs and move water away from your home.
