Seasonal Work

Snow Removal

Keeping the weight of the snow on your roof to a minimum is going to reduce stress on your roof structure, and can help prevent ice-damming.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Snow density varies, so it’s difficult to identify what that exact amount of snow is to clear off your roof. We recommend it’s best to be preventative, and remove any significant amounts of snow that accumulate. If inside doors are not closing properly, there are cracks appearing in your ceiling, unusual creaking sounds or water leaks – it may already be too late.

Roof snow clearing is best left to professionals with proper equipment and tools so you avoid potentially damaging your roof, or risking injury from falls.

Ice-damming

Ice dams can form due to freeze-thaw cycles, warm sunny winter days, or attic air that’s too warm. Heat can melt the snow on your roof, and water from melting snow can freeze at the edge of your roof creating dams.

Without proper roof snow removal, the ice that develops can stop melted snow from properly draining off the roof. With no path to drain off your roof, the water may then go back up and underneath roof shingles, making its way into the interiors of your home.

The first sign of ice-damming is icicles, which form when gutters are full and the water has no where to go. Other signs of ice-damming include new water stains on your ceilings, and uneven melting of snow on your roof.

Roof Inspections

As seasons change, so can the condition of your roof. Has it been a while since you’ve seen the top of your house? We’ll take a look for you.

Our inspections include photos and a full report back about what we see, providing you important information to make decisions before your shingle warranty expires or you miss out on making an insurance claim.

Stay comfortable on the ground while we bring you peace of mind.
