Conifer Gutter Service – Colorado’s Gutter And Downspout Experts SINCE 1979
At Conifer Gutter Service, we get it. We’ve been taking care of Denver and Colorado home owners since 1979… and that means we’ve helped our customers get through four decades of snowy Rocky Mountain winters.
The amount of snow that can accumulate on a Colorado home’s roof can surprise folks from warmer climates. And there are risks associated with rooftop snow accumulation: large amounts of snow could “avalanche” from the roof, damaging property or (even worse) hurting people below.
When snow piles up in your home’s gutters, the thaw-freeze-thaw-freeze cycle typical during our winters can easily create ice dams in your gutters and on your roof. Those can lead to more serious problems: your gutters can burst (like a soda-pop can in the freezer), pull away, or even fall off your house.
Even worse: water can back up under your shingles, and come into your house!
And that can lead to even worse problems… get water and ice pooling around your home’s foundation (or coming in through the ceiling), and you could have a very difficult, time-consuming, and expensive situation on your hands.
That’s why Conifer Gutter Service is happy to offer Denver and Colorado home owners a great solution: rooftop snow stops (also known as “snow guards”) which keep the snow from leaving your roof in large “avalanches,” but to melt slowly.
