Although metal buildings in Boston, MA, can take a lot from the weather, snow poses unique challenges that would test the mettle of any structure. Serious safety hazards accumulate as the snow falls, and removing it before it becomes an issue is essential for building owners. Buckled roofs, foundation issues, and ice dams are all top-of-mind when dealing with the blizzards and whiteouts of New England.
Plan for Storms
Since the region routinely experiences winter storms with high snow volumes, most metal buildings are built to withstand the forces of nature. However, heavy, wet accumulation and freeze-thaw cycles can create conditions that cause significant damage to buildings whose owners don’t take advantage of regular snow removal services.
After every storm, metal building owners should review their structure to determine whether they need to have the snow cleared. Sometimes it may not look like a problem, but diligent removal becomes the primary concern when the region experiences multiple events over the winter. A storm that leaves behind six inches may not raise alarms, but four or five similar snowfalls in a row can quickly add up to major problems.
