Roof snow removal

Roof snow removal / icicle removing

The winter season in Ottawa is propitious to snow accumulation on the roofs and to formation of icicle along the curbs. This can quickly evolve and become a risk for people moving around homes and buildings. A collapse of the roof can even occur under the weight of snow and ice.

Popular Questions

Why remove snow from commercial roof ?

You must prevent serious damage that could be irreversible. Snow removal can eliminate the possibility of a disaster in a commercial building while preserving the integrity of its structure. By removing excess weight from the roof, you can avoid a collapse of the structure due the accumulation of snow and ice in the tanks. In many cases, insurance companies request snow removal.

How do I know when roof snow removal is necessary?

A good rule to keep in mind is to clear your roof after every 6 inches of snow. If you prevent snow from accumulating on your roof, it is much harder for ice dams to form. When deciding when to clear the roof, it is also important to take into account the snow load. Heavy, wet snow can weigh 6 times more than dry snow. If you go out and pick up the snow and it seems heavy and wet, it’s a sign that could indicate that your roof should be cleared soon.

Why hire a professional rather than remove the snow yourself?

The damage of a snow-covered roof can be avoided by calling on the services of experts from a snow removal company. Of course, it is possible to remove it by yourself, however be careful because removing snow from a roof is a dangerous task. This activity requires not only special equipment, but there may also be layers of ice, ventilation, electrical installations and other hazards nearby that a professional can avoid. Working on a snow-covered roof exposes you to significant hazards, including severe falls and very cold temperatures. Professionals know what to look for on roofs and they use the proper and safe equipment to work.
