Well we finally got a big snow storm in the niagara area and although we often think more about driving conditions than about snow on our roof, your roof is one of the hardest hit features of your home when the weather turns nasty.
Even if you have a well maintained roof, you may experience problems after a particularly bad blast of snow so here are a few tips to make sure you stay on top of things.
The first thing you should do after a winter storm is to walk around your house and assess any potential damage areas. Next, remove snow from your roof, but only if it’s safe to do so and you possess the proper tools.
If you own a one-story home with a low-pitched roof, a snow rake is a great way to help you pull snow drifts off your roof. No matter how many precautions you take, you might notice a series of issues that you can’t address by yourself — that’s when it’s time to call the professionals.
When to Contact a Professional
