Name: Knockout Snow Services. Descripton:During the winter months, Knockout Roofing offers snow removal services throughout Salt Lake County. We specialize in snowplowing and salt application for business and industrial parking lots, schools and school district lots and sidewalks, apartment complexes and HOAs. Many businesses contract with Knockout Roofing so they don’t have to think about snow removal for the entire season! We also provide residential and commercial snow removal services on roofs to prevent or dislodge ice dams and relieve water ponding. Heavy snow loads and long periods of freezing weather mean snow doesn’t thaw enough to fall naturally off the roof. The formation of ice dams occurs when insufficient insulation allows internal heat to melt snow above the central parts of the roof but not along the overhangs. The melted water refreezes due to low temperatures near the edges of the roof, trapping additional water from escaping. The ice dams can build up to be very heavy and quite dangerous, for not only home your or business, but for any person, car, or anything else that happens to be in the way if it does slide off. Leaking roofs due to winter snowpack and ponding water can damage not only your roof but the walls of your home as well by compromising your structural integrity. Trained professionals like Knockout Roofing remove ice dams carefully without damaging your roof.
