Roof Ice Dam Prevention and Removal
We provide ice dam prevention and removal services for homeowners in St. Catharines, Burlington, Niagara, Hamilton, and Oakville.
Ice dams can cause lasting damage to your roof, and can even damage your ceiling, walls, and insulation if left unchecked for too long.
An ice dam forms when snow melts (due to warm air near your roof), runs down your roof (often into the eavestrough), and then freezes again. As more snow flows to this spot and is blocked, water is forced under your roof shingles and underlayment.
Our Ice Dam Prevention Services
We Can Improve Your Roof Ventilation: Warm air can build up in the attic and rafters if your roof and attic are not properly ventilated. We can make ventilation recommendations and install new vents if needed.
We Can Improve Your Insulation: You could be losing heat through your roof, creating ice dams (and also wasting energy and money on lost heat). We can inspect your attic’s insulation and provide additional insulation as required.
We Can Remove Snow on Your Roof: When snow piles up on your roof, it starts acting as an insulator and warming the air at the bottom, where your roof is. We provide professional, safe snow removal services to stop ice dams before they happen and protect your roof’s structural integrity. *NEVER go up on a roof in the winter.
Our Ice Dam Removal Services
We have the tools, equipment, experience, and safety training necessary to remove winter ice dams from residential roofs. Our professional contractors will not damage your roof in the process of removing the ice.
In some cases, we may salt your roof to prevent further ice buildup or help destroy existing ice dams.
