Roof Snow Removal

We offer roof snow removal for both residential and commercial buildings. We shovel snow from pitched roofs and flat roofs alike.

Ice Dam Prevention Technique #1:Get the Snow Off Your Roof!
If there is no snow on your roof then there is nothing to melt.

This method of ice dam prevention denies ice dams the food they need to grow. Snow removal is the best way to prevent ice dams, and in many cases the most cost-effective and easiest way.

It can be hard to tell what weather Mother Nature will throw at you next, or even what kind of attention your roof might need right now. Here are some guidelines for when you might want roof snow removal (for which we use shovels, and roof rakes versus ice removal (for which we use steamer machines):

Tips for When roof snow removal is a really good idea:

Remove Snow from your Roof– If a snowstorm dropped 6+ inches of snow on your roof

– If your roof has 6+ inches of snow from several storms

– If you have a flat roof

– If you’ve had a history of problems with attic insulation and/or ice dams

When you may need more than snow removal:

If the snow looks hard—as though it’s become ice
– If you’re a homeowner and have icicles hanging from your gutters, roof overhangs or soffits

– If you’re a business owner and have giant plumes of ice attached to the vertical surfaces of your building

– If you have water leaking inside your home or business

Call us at (978) 771-3182 for same-day or next-day roof snow removal, or to schedule a future date and time for us to come by. You can also contact us through our email or our website portal

Featured Testimonial:  Review of Deck and Three-Season Room Project

1- The Need

I was faced with replacing a deteriorating multi-level deck on my contemporary style ‘deck’ house. While replacing the deck with the same design was an option, I was painfully aware that the original deck design had limitations and therefore was never really put to use by the family. I could not see investing significant money into a design that would ultimately be of little practical value. I had a general idea for type of improvements I would like to see over the original design… Read the full testimonial!
