Heavy Snow Leads to Property Damage

In 2019, $2.1 billion in insured losses were caused by winter storms*. Heavy snow is a common occurrence in the North, with winter storms already passing through this year. In some cases, the heavy snowfall can cause the roof or building to collapse. When this happens, 1800Adjusters™ is ready to fight for your rights.

Heavy Snow Causes Structural Failure

During snow events, several factors lead to building collapse.

  • Snow load might exceed the structure’s ability.
  • Sliding and drifting snow cause a heavier load.
  • Structure was constructed deficiently.
  • Insufficient maintenance.
  • Inadequate drainage.

Commercial property owners must be aware of unbalanced snow loads. Larger structures can accumulate different depths of snow across the property. This uneven weight increases the chances of collapse.

Additionally, residential property owners should remain aware of sliding snow. This phenomenon occurs when snow moves from a higher part of your roof to a lower portion, leading to damage. The type of roof you have will determine how much snow can safely sit on top of your home.
