Here at GF Sprague, we offer solutions to repair damage to your roof caused by ice damming, as well as prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.
Prevention is key in keeping ice off your roof and water out of your home.
While you can’t prevent snow from collecting on your roof, there are other things you can do to prevent ice dams from causing water damage to your house. Some homeowners choose to focus on reducing the amount of heat that escapes into the attic, warming the upper part of the roof deck and causing snow to melt evenly.
This type of ice dam prevention typically involves sealing air leaks in the attic floor and other solutions. Adequate attic ventilation is also important to keep the underside of the roof the same temperature as the outside air.
GF Sprague offers our professional snow removal services for roofs all throughout the Greater Boston area.
We safely & effectively remove snow without damaging shingles
We work from the ground whenever possible, carefully using long snow rakes that resemble garden hoes. Our workers are instructed to remove small amounts of snow at a time to avoid being hit by falling snow or ice. We are particularly careful to avoid dislodging roof shingles and gutters. If it is necessary to work from the roof, proper safety gear is used to prevent accidents and care is taken to locate skylights, dryer vents, and roof vents beforehand.
Our snow removal methods ensure the safety of our workers and won’t damage your roof. Contact us before the snow begins to fall so we can map your roof and inspect the shingles and gutters. With this preparation, we can more effectively handle snow removals when the need arises.
