Reminder: Removing Snow from your Roof

Emergencies  

  • This is a recommendation of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec.
  • Please clear the snow off your roofs, emergency exits, balconies, sheds, garages, etc.
  • Use appropriate equipment to avoid damaging the roof waterproofing membrane.
  • Clear your roof from the ground, using a roof scraper with a telescopic handle, to prevent any risk of falling.
  • Be aware of the warning signs of a sagging roof (examples: cracks on interior walls or interior doors jamming).
