Roof Snow Removal - Need Help?

As a homeowner in Ottawa, you are prone to snow and ice buildup on your roof. These buildups have the potential to cause serious damage if left unattended.

After a heavy snowfall, like the one we are expecting tonight! Excessive buildup of snow can actually cause your roof to buckle and in extreme cases, even collapse.  The most common form of damage, however, occurs when snow melts and then refreezes at the base of your roof where the eaves are. 

This is referred to as ice damming, which can lead to trapped water underneath the shingles and water leakage through the roof deck and nail holes.  Additional risks include:

  • Shingle damage
  • Blockage of essential ventilation through the attic
  • Warped eaves trough and fascia
  • Plugged gutters and spouts
  • Leakage into the attic, ceilings and walls
  • Structural damage

Doing the roof snow removal without the help of an experienced professional can be extremely dangerous.
