As the snow falls it is important to monitor the accumulation on your awnings and patio roofs. With heavy accumulations of snow, dust off any awnings or covers if possible. Wind can accumulate snow drifts on structures, which can lead to tremendous loading. If heavy accumulation of snow is left of roofs, ensuing warming and rain acts as a sponge and can cause roof failure in extreme cases.
When fall arrives, leaves can fill up your patio covers gutters, clogging the drain and causing gutters to overflow water, annd this can lead to dangerous ice formation. Keep your gutters clean! May Awning does service patio cover gutter cleaning.
