Roof Repair Surrey Tips: Why It’s Important to Have Snow Removed from Your Roof

Winter is right around the corner. Is your roof ready for it? Rain, sleet, and especially snow can be tough on even the sturdiest roofs. Sure, the Lower Mainland isn’t exactly famous for its snowy weather, but we do get our fair share of the white stuff. While you are shoveling your driveway this season, don’t forget to look up at your roof—all the snow that’s accumulated can cause some major damage and serious headaches this season. Our roof repair professionals in Surrey have put together some common reasons why it’s important to have snow removed from your roof.

Causes Structural Damage

Snowflakes may look fluffy and light, but a buildup of snow can add up to some serious weight. Left too long, heavy and damp snow can put added stress on your roof, resulting in roof repair in Surrey, structural damage, and even collapse. To protect your home and your family, make sure to have the snow on your roof regularly removed.

Blocks Roof Vents

Roof vents play a major role in airing out your home. If snow blocks the roof vents, condensation can form, ruining shingles, roof decks, and attic insulation. Removing snow will not only prevent damage, but also help save you on your energy bills.

Damages Gutters

Your gutters keep water away from your home. But a buildup of snow and ice can clog and damage them, forcing eavestroughs to tear away from the roof. And if your gutters can’t do their job, water runoff can put your foundation at risk, as well as lead to leaks in the basement.

Creates Interior Damage

If you’ve noticed unsightly stains on your ceiling, it could be a sign of a leaky roof. As the snow begins to melt, the moisture seeps underneath the shingles and down past the roof, creating ugly brown marks on the interior walls and ceilings. And if your leaky roof gets worse, moisture damage can lead to major structural issues down the road.

Get Snow Removal Help From a Roof Repair Professional

When it comes to removing snow on your roof, safety should always be a top priority. Snowy or icy conditions can lead to slipping or falling that could seriously injure you, or worse. If Old Man Winter decides to visit your roof this year, leave the shoveling to trained professionals. They’ll have the snow off the roof before you know it, saving you time, energy, and a trip to the emergency ward.

Shortly after moving into our new home, we contacted Landmark about doing some maintenance on the structure's 10 year old roof - moss treatment, replacing damaged shingles and faschia board, gutter cleaning, and the installation of a new ridge-vent and water diverters. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and genuinely wanted to help and deliver good value. He and his team delivered on all fronts and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
