    Flat Roof Snow Removal Hamilton

    While a flat roof offers many advantages, during winter, this type of roof becomes a repository for snow. This is because its flat design does not allow snow to fall off. As a result of this, flat roof snow removal has to be part of your roof maintenance plan. Failure to remove the snow on time can lead to myriad structural problems.

    Considering there is a risk of frostbites when climbing a ladder in the cold and an even higher risk of falling, hiring a professional to help with flat roof snow removal in Hamilton, Burlington or Mississauga is the best decision you can make.

    There are also alternative methods that don’t force you to get on the roof such as installing heating cables to melt the snow.

    When Is Flat Roof Snow Removal Necessary?

    A good rule when it comes to the removal of snow from a flat roof is to clear it after every 6 inches of snowfall. Doing so will prevent too much snow from piling on your roof. You will also not deal with the issue of ice dams forming or your roof caving-in.

    However, if you have never had an ice damage and your only concern is keeping the roof from collapsing, you might want to calculate the snow load on your roof. Most roofs are designed to hold up 20 pounds per square foot. This is according to modern building codes. Older structures and those with a flat roof may struggle under this weight. You also have to bear in mind that not all snowstorms are the same.

    To calculate the snow load on the roof, you need to assume that each inch deep of snow is equivalent to 1.25 pounds. With that in mind, the formula will be: (S x 1.25 = P). S is the depth in inches of the snow whereas P is the pounds per square foot the roof supports. With that in mind, if the snow has a depth of 9 inches, then the calculation will be 9 x 1.25. The weight per square foot is 11.25 pounds.

    What Happens if I Don’t Remove Snow off My Flat Roof?

    Failure to remove snow from a flat roof may lead to the following problems:

    1. Cracks and crevices due to ice damming
    2. Buckling of the roof’s joists and trusses
    3. Leaks due to ponding when snow melts
    4. Buckling or bowing walls or beams
    5. Safety concerns caused by icicles
    6. Collapsed roof

    Should I Call the Professionals to Remove Snow From My Flat Roof?

    I needed several windows replaced, a new side door, all siding / soffits / eaves / flashing replaced on the house, and the gables re-sided on my garage. D'Angelo's pricing was competitive - add to which, windows and doors are manufactured locally and working with a single service provider to coordinate all the activity rather than try to do that myself was really convenient.

    Very happy we decided to go with D’Angelo & Sons for our new roof. Easy quote process & was able to schedule the work in a very timely fashion, squeezing it in just before the snow came. Roofing crew were great, hardly even knew they were there and they did an awsome clean up job once the work was complete. Rochelle was very professional and a pleasure...

    D'Angelo and Sons did my roof last year and I was very pleased; they were well organized, came when scheduled and worked quickly. The roof looks great. This year, a storm damaged my roof. Carlos Vassallo came out and assessed the damage quickly and gave me an estimate. After dealing with the insurance company for months, we finally got the go ahead...

    I am very pleased with the repair to my window capping that Steve F did today. He did excellent work and took the time to fix the problem and make it look fantastic. The problem was more complicated than it looked and he was careful to both protect my siding and windows as well as replace the capping perfectly. I would also like to thank the receptionist at D'Angelo...

    We recently made the decision to fully replace our roof after losing many shingles to a windstorm. D'Angelo & Sons was very prompt in their response to our query and we had an appointment for an estimate a few days later. David was great; he was punctual and friendly. He patiently explained to us the condition of our roof and showed us pictures so we could see for ourselves. We feel secure in our decision in choosing D'Angelo & Sons for our new roof.

    When we set out to replace our roof this year, we vowed not to make the same mistakes we did the first time. We researched, asked multiple questions, and Glenn was always there for us and happy to answer any questions we had. There are many, many roofers out there, and choosing D'Angelo was the best choice we could have made. The crew was pleasant and efficient, and also happy to answer any question. We would highly recommend D'Angelo to anyone that asks. I'll be calling Glenn in the spring to discuss our eaves and fascia!

    My experience with D'Angelo and Sons was altogether positive. From my initial contact with Taylor, we were set up with an appointment with Josh two days later who gave us a full overview of what was needed and the cost. We had two other estimates and found D'Angelo to be comparable in price for the work that needed to be done. They estimated the project would start within 2-3 weeks dependent on weather and their projected timeline was accurate. Jenn was our project manager and she maintain a high level of communication with us throughout the project to ensure that we were aware of what was happening. From first contact with the company to the completion of the project, there was a high level of communication and transparency in the work they were doing. It's been almost 8 weeks since the project was complete and we've been through several significant weather events without issue. I appreciated the level of customer service that was provided by Taylor, Josh and Jenn (and roofing team) and their level of communication throughout the project.

    My sincere thanks to Steve (Sales) for your patience with all our questions and Brad (PM) for keeping us in the loop every step of the way. Chad, you and your crew did a great job to get the siding replaced and the work area cleaned up, before our backyard birthday party as promised. Rocky - thanks for going the extra mile to make sure the lighting was done just right! This is our second project with D'Angelo & Sons, which again, was delivered the project on time and on budget. More important than the asthetic improvement from the new siding (which you were right about, Steve!), the house is noticably more comfortable inside, due to the air barrier and insulation added. If I hear of anyone looking for a good contractor for roofing or siding work, I will definitely recommend D'Angelo & Sons.

    We had a massive project on our 3 storey 130year old Victorian Home. Roof replacement, siding, windows, soffits, fascia, eavestrough and other cladding and capping as required. The crews arrived on time, they worked safe at heights and steep roof pitches, they were kind & courteous, and cleaned up after each job was complete. As a home inspector, I found the workmanship to be top notch and would recommend them to any of my clients if they required work to their home.
