Flat Roof Snow Removal
Flat roof snow and ice removal services
Snow and ice removal are essential for flat roofs. According to the Quebec Provincial Association of Home Builders (APCHQ), this work should be done when the snow is deeper than 28 inches or when the weight is too heavy.
Preventive measures prevent all damage caused by excess snow and ice such as risk of collapse, weakening of the structure and water leaks. If problems occur with the structure, emergency action is recommended to limit the damage that can spread through the building.
If you want to take advantage of a quick and efficient service, the team of qualified Montreal roofers at Les Couvreurs-Duro-Toit is your most valuable asset. We have the best tools, including a low-pressure steam machine, to remove snow from your roof as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We remove snow and ice from residential roofs in the Greater Montreal area.
Is flat roof snow removal necessary?
Cold weather in Quebec causes significant damage. When snow accumulates, a substantial weight is placed on the building structure, which can lead to various types of damage and even the total collapse of the roof.
Other problems occur during thawing. This is when the snow melts and seeps into cracks and crevices. Without taking proper precautions, the build-up of ice on the roof can cause serious damage. You can only avoid this with regular snow removal. Here are examples of the warning signs that deserve your attention:
- Mold in your attic
- Icicles forming along the boundary of your roof
- Water leaks
- Cracks in the ceiling or walls
- Large amounts of snow or ice falling from the roof
- Displaced or broken ceiling tiles
If you notice one of the above 6 signs, it is high time to take action and call in professional roofers. In addition to removing snow from your roof, any necessary repairs will help you avoid further problems.
