Commercial flat roofs are more likely to accumulate more snow and ice when it’s compared to pitched roofs. if the roof is designed with a high curb all around, it can be the main cause of the snow to park for long term rather than blow away with the wind.
Depending on the sqf of the flat roof, dept of the snow can be a real danger if you ask me. There is big difference in between powder snow and wet moist snow. It may be dry and powder right now but as soon as thaw starts the weight of the snow will multiply. We have seen in the past flat roofs collapsing due to extra weight added on by the wet snow.
It is very important to clear not all but most of it prior to thaw to avoid the structural stress and possibility of structural damage.

Winter is around the corner and we are getting set up for another long winter in Ottawa. Last year was pretty messed so we might see a repeat this year.
Residential snow removal in Ottawa was very challenging last year because of the unexpected amount of snow that fell. It was really hard to push all that snow on someones lawn. City of Ottawa did a great job of taking away all the extra snow banks before we got dumped more snow. At that point we realized that winter has just begun. Commercial snow removal in Ottawa was very challenging also because of all the traffic on busy gas stations and lots. As it was snowing vehicles would drive right over it and pack it down. Thanx to Fisher snow plow technology we were able to scrape the packed snow down to pavement. Other snow plows are not able to perform as well a Fisher. By far i would highly recommend Fisher snow plows any day.

When the month of November arrives all the business owner panic to get a reliable company to provide snow plowing for the long winter months in Ottawa.
Majority of the times snow removal companies keep signing contracts even though they know they can’t keep up with the work load. In other words sign the contract get paid half up front and we’ll do what we can. Is it fair for the business owners to pay half up front and not get the snow removed on time? I don’t think it is fair. It happens every year where the property or the business owner rushes to get that contract signed and get screwed along the way.
I am a business owner too and I only take what I can complete. No point for me to take the extra work away from the others who needs it the most and mess it up for the customer and for myself. I have one advise to all the business owners, ” stop being greedy”
It’s not a pizzeria where the cook can make hundreds of pizzas in an hour. If it snows for 24 hours non stop all the clients will be waiting for u at the same time.
Always shop around, trust your instincts, be reasonable and get your moneys worth. Don’t think of smaller companies any less than the well established ones. They were small back in the days too remember.
