When temperatures linger around -5 and zero degrees Celsius, depending on the amount of snow there is on your shingles, you can see where the snow is melting.
When you set your thermostat to room temperature of 23 degrees Celsius during cold winter months, your insulation keeps the hot air stay inside. If the insulation is 30 + years old, it will become compressed and lose its R Rating. Homes that are 30 + years have serious ice dam issues due to heat loss caused by poor insulation and/or compromised vapour barrier.
Most modern homes have blown insulation in the attic, with a dept of 18 inches once its settled. To maintain your carbon print and keep your home energy efficient, it is highly recommended to upgrade insulation, roof, underlay, ice&water shield and new high flow roof ventilation.
If you spend 20k for instant on new roof, insulation ect… your heating bill will reduce by atleast 35 % and if we calculate that by 20 years, money spent on energy efficiency pays itself off in the long run.

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.
