Snow & Ice Removal
McKay Roofing offers snow and ice removal services for commercial and industrial buildings. In the Ottawa Valley, we have on average, 70 freeze/thaw cycles every winter. If your roof had ice damming problems last year, there is a good chance you will again this year unless you are able to take timely action. Professional snow and ice removal services can help avoid the risk of personal injury as well as damage to your roof and building structure. This is very important for businesses with traffic areas such as sidewalks or plazas, because the liability must be taken into consideration. Corporate clients use McKay Roofing to protect themselves against such potential liabilities.
While all roofs are susceptible to damage from snow and ice build-up, Flat Roofs are particularly at risk. The sheer weight of the snow or ice can cause them to cave in. When faced with accumulation of snow on your building, it is advisable to call for a snow removal expert as trying to clear the snow yourself can be extremely dangerous. Not only are you putting yourself at risk but inexperienced handling can also cause serious damage to your roof.
Important Points To Consider About Snow Removal And Ice Damming:
Snow and ice removal is a specialized and dangerous job which should only be performed by fully trained, equipped, insured and bonded roofing professionals.
Falling ice, typically resulting from ice damming presents a potentially serious liability; especially if the ice falls in high traffic areas (entrance or sidewalk) around commercial buildings.
Every year we hear reports of roofs that collapse after a heavy snow fall. Reduce your risk by arranging safe, professional snow removal by the professionals at McKay Roofing.
We also offer smart solutions such as the installation of snow guards and snow rails to help minimize your liabilities.
