If you’re a business owner, you don’t have time for a leak (or much of anything).
Because many businesses have flat or metal roofs, ice dams can be even more dangerous because of two hazards: falling ice chunks and foot or vehicle traffic. That’s a liability issue. Flat roofs can cause another host of problems. We’ve seen ice dams literally form a column or wall of ice nearly all around the building. With flat roofs, we also need to create drainage before we start steaming, so that the water created by the melting ice dam doesn’t end up inside your building.
Not every ice dam removal professional can handle commercial jobs. Sometimes it takes special equipment, like a man-lift. It also takes more staff members, because someone typically has to be on the ground watching out for the safety of your employees, customers, and passers-by. Call a company that’s loaded for bear and fully equipped to take care of business for your business.
