During periods of heavy snowfall, snow and ice buildup may exceed the load capacity of your deck and roof. Our snow removal, roof raking, and ice dam removal services will ensure that snow is removed properly and safely, reduce the likelihood of damage to your deck, roof and gutters.
We also provide safe and efficient plow-less snow removal services for your property, driveways, and walkways. All snow removal is done by hand with snow blowers and shovels equipped with a plastic-edged blade. Our services are guaranteed to be landscaping friendly, protecting your curbs, vegetation and stonework from damage.
One square-foot of snow one-inch in depth weighs about a pound. Many decks and roofs, especially, older, flat and special structures such as carports, garages, and sheds are not always rated to support the kind of weight associated with a heavy snowfall. Minimizing the stress placed on them is a great way to minimize the risk of leaking and cave-ins. It’s also important to keep your roof as snow-free as possible to prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.
SEAL-A-DECK will inspect your deck and roof to let you know just how much snow weight it can handle so that you know when to call us to help ease the load. We can then arrange to be at your home after a heavy snowfall to ensure that snow is removed properly, safely and quickly reducing the potential for damage.
We also provide safe and efficient snow removal services for your surrounding property, driveway, and walkways:
While most pitched roofs are designed to handle excess snow, there’s potential for structural damage, with large, flat roofs posing the greatest risk. Removing excessive snow from a roof is highly recommended in order to prevent ice dams, yet it can be hazardous taking care of it yourself.
It can be extremely dangerous to try to get up on the roof covered in snow or to stand on a ladder to remove the snow. Although a roof rake allows you to stand on the ground and remove the snow, if the roof’s pitch is overly steep, the snow can slide off rapidly causing injury. It’s also easy to lose sight of the fact that a large aluminum roof rake is every bit as dangerous as a ladder when it comes to making contact with an overhead power lines.
Our professionally trained crews work from the ground whenever possible, carefully using long snow rakes 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.
Ice dams are all too common during winter, and while they may look pretty, they can cause serious damage to your home. They are typically caused by a combination of poor attic or roof ventilation and a warm attic space. Your roof, gutters, and insulation, and more are all susceptible to damage created by ice dams.
Ice dams form when snow melts and runs down your roof to your gutter where ice builds up and backs up. If ignored, ice dams can cause serious damage to your roof, gutters, paint, insulation and interior drywall and other surfaces. To prevent long-term damage to your roof and gutters, it is important to deal with ice dams quickly.
Climbing up the side of your house in the freezing winter is dangerous, and we highly recommend using Seal-a-Deck’s ice dam removal services to ensure safety and guaranteed results. The professionals at Seal-a-Deck use low pressure steamers that use wet steam under low pressure to melt ice faster. Super-heated water is directed like a scalpel to melt the ice precisely and quickly into blocks that are then removed. This is the fastest and safest way to remove ice dams without damage to your roof.
The workmanship was really good, and I am very happy with the service.
Good work and convenient logistics at a good price.
Seal-A-Deck did an excellent job on my deck. They were responsible, friendly and skilled at their job. Everything was on-time and well done - the deck looks great.
I would need a pad of lined paper to take down all my accolades for the job that Seal-A-Deck did on my backyard deck. I have never been the recipient of a construction-restructuring job in which everything went very smoothly, and I felt taken care of at each step in the process. I appreciate that enormously. From beginning to end and even after completion, the courtesy calls, the follow up and the follow through were simply as good as it gets. The power wash and cleaning, the people performing the work, and the product at the end of the process with staining were all as close to perfect as I could have dreamed. I wish Seal-A-Deck could teach their customer service to every company out there!
Seal-A-Deck did a terrific job. Their work was meticulous, they came when they said they would, they finished on time, the team was polite and professional, and most importantly, the end product looks great. I would recommend them highly.
We had several pieces of teak furniture refinished. Very professional, reliable, and qualified. Would use them again in a minute.
Seal-A-Deck is a wonderful company! I would highly recommend using them for your decking needs. I had a deck that needed restoration. They did a fantastic job cleaning, sanding and staining the deck! It looks brand new!
True professionals! Our deck, although fairly new, was not sealed properly by another contractor last year. As a result, we had severe discoloration/mold that left the wood in complete ruin. The Seal-A-Deck crew came in and treated the mold, sanded down and renewed the wood to its original state, and stained it to perfection! Would gladly use them for maintenance for many years to come and strongly recommend them to anyone who needs their deck to shine again.
We were so happy with the way our deck came out! The color we picked was just right! With so many companies being busy right now, Seal-A-Deck came through and made time for our project. The results were outstanding as shown in the pictures attached. They were quick, efficient, and pleasant to converse with. We cannot thank Seal-A-Deck enough for the work they did!
We recently had our deck rebuilt. Everything went smoothly from the time we spoke with Frank to get the design together. We were put on the schedule promptly and kept informed of all details. The finished product was beautiful, and we can't wait to use it. Thank you, Frank, Nicole, Evelyn and the entire team. Fair price and great work.
