Roof Snow and Ice Removal in Laval
Why do snow removal need to be done?
Performing snow removal on a roof is recommended for several reasons.
Reason for safety
Snow can become a serious problem in winter when there is a little too much on the road, in front of the door but especially on the roof. An accumulation represents a real danger for the inhabitants of the house concerned and those who circulate in the vicinity.
An unpredictable situation could occur and cause an accident. For example, passers-by may be victims of the spill of ice that piled up on the roof. When the snow reaches a certain thickness, more precisely when it exceeds 60 cm or 24 inches, the owners must act.
The people of Canada often encounter this type of problem during the winter, whether in Laval, Montreal or elsewhere. It is then essential to act before it is too late. But how to recognize the warning signs?
Signs to recognize
There are various signs to know that snow removal must be done. When the roof bears too much ice, it can start to crack and warp. If you decide to let this situation last, the condition of your roof will inevitably deteriorate. Whether at the level of its look or its robustness.
When the situation becomes critical, the signs become more and more alarming. Cracks may also form and the doors will not close properly. It may be that the ceiling is deformed and even crack. In case the roof starts to produce real ice cubes, there is urgency. At this point, you need to call in a professional as soon as possible.
It should be known that the formation of ice cubes is a dam to prevent water from flowing. This one can then infiltrate a little everywhere, in particular the tiles, the shingles, the attic without forgetting the walls. The snow removal specialist will then proceed with the de-icing to limit the damage.
