Snow on roads needs to be removed to meet public safety demands. As a news article from abclocal.go.com reports:
The North Carolina Department of Transportation said Wednesday afternoon that it’s working to salt roads north and east of the Triangle that saw the heaviest snow Tuesday night.
Officials said DOT crews were out clearing interstate and primary routes in Edgecombe, Halifax and Nash counties, including Interstate 95, as well as in Wilson County where snow continued to fall into Wednesday morning. Motorists are advised to plan for extra time when traveling through the area.
ABC11 Meteorologist Don “Big Weather” Schwenneker said temperatures will stay below freezing all day, despite lots of bright sunshine.
The freezing temperatures could cause untreated roads and side streets to be especially bad.
Just as roads need to be cleared out of snow, so should your roof be free of such icy precipitation. If you’re wondering if your roof can stand the extra weight of snow, don’t reach for a ladder and a shovel. Instead, reach for the telephone. Calling in professional roofing contractors in High Point to remove snow from your roof is the smartest and safest option.
The most important factor in determining excessive snow on your roof isn’t the depth of snow, but the weight. Local winter weather announcements should alert you to the possibility that snow loads are becoming a threat to your roof. When they do, call a roofing contractor immediately.
Whether you require an emergency service to remove ice from a leaking roof or a routine snow removal service to prevent ice dams, you can trust reliable High Point, NC roofing contractors like ABC Roofing & Exteriors to tackle the task professionally.
