For roof snow removal in Montreal, choose a professional team that will offer you fast and safe work. Whether it be for a flat roof or an inclined roof (regardless of the type of covering), we can clear snow on a regular interval, or after a big snow storm.
We also de-ice roofs, in order to free the edges of the roof from ice that damages the covering, thus triggering water infiltrations. Our team boasts extensive experience in roof snow removal, whether it be in residential (plexes or apartment buildings), commercial or industrial settings.
Flat or sloped roofs need to have their snow cleared, as the weight of the accumulated snow becomes a threat for the structure of the building. An accumulation of heavy wet snow or ice, which hasn’t been removed for several storms, weighs around 1,000 pounds per square meter. Every year, the media reports on roofs which crumbled due to negligence! On sloped roofs, it is also a danger that the snow slides off and injures someone.
For commercial or industrial flat roofs, it is important to know that it is imperative to clear the snow several times per winter. The materials are solid, but the supporting structure is not failproof. Too much weight can cause the roof to droop and add a lot of pressure onto the supporting beams.
Snow clearing at regular intervals helps avoid problems which can become costly. Our team can help you with your snow removal at a great price! We remove the snow while being careful not to damage the covering of your roof (elastomeric, TPO or EPDM membrane, asphalt shingles, asphalt and gravel coverings). We leave a thin layer of snow on your roof to prevent our shovels from coming into contact with the covering of your roof.
Our flat or sloped roof snow removal work is done in a secure manner. Our snow removers use techniques recommended by the Régie du bâtiment. We carve out a spill area which we secure on the ground, we prohibit pedestrians from approaching the security perimeter, and, on flat roofs, we create a 2-meter buffer zone near the edge of the roof and we install guard rails on either side.
For commercial, institutional and industrial building roofs, our team can carry out the snow removal tasks outside of business hours, as a safety measure for pedestrians.
