Sloped roof snow removal

Roof snow removal and de-icing help to maintain the integrity of your property against damage caused by snow and ice accumulations. According to Quebec's provincial association of home builders (APCHQ), it is recommended to remove snow and ice in excess of 12 inches from pitched roofs. This maintenance reduces the risk of water infiltration that can spread into the attic and sometimes even inside the house. Roof snow removal also prevents weight overloads that weaken the structure and the decking. Without a complete response, accumulations expose the roof to collapse. For these reasons, it is preferable to leave your roof snow removal and ice control to experienced roofers.


Roof Snow Removal as Prevention

Every three months, it is recommended to inspect your property to avoid damage caused by an overload on the roof. If you spot the early signs that the structure is weakening, it is best to talk to an expert roofer. It is possible that accumulations have damaged the structure and decking. Early intervention may be necessary to preserve the integrity of the building.
