One of the biggest problems facing Toronto area homeowners every winter is the dangerous buildup of snow and ice on roofs.
Heavy snow and ice on a rooftop can:
- Block vital ventilation
- Warp eaves and damage fascia boards
- Damage shingles
- Plug gutters and spouts
- Create ice dams
- Get into the attic and soak insulation, ceilings and walls
- Cause structural damage to the building
Hiring amateurs – or worse, removing the snow yourself – is not only dangerous. Inexperienced snow removers can damage your roof even more, leading to expensive repairs.

Dangerous icicles pose a hazard to your customers, while melting and refreezing snow can cause ice dams and other damage requiring expensive repairs.
In addition, many area businesses, such as those in strip malls, have flat roofs. One heavy snow fall can drop an incredible 1000 lbs. of snow onto a flat roof, which can cause structural damage – or even a catastrophic roof collapse.
Imagine the cost — in terms of lost business, the installation of a whole new roof, and higher insurance premiums.

With winters like those we experience in the GTA, ice dams are a common problem. Ice dams are build-ups of ice on the base, eaves and other areas on your roof.
Ice dams form where heat from the inside of a home escapes into the attic and warms the roof deck (the boards or ply beneath your shingles). This heat (combined with the natural heat from the sun), can melt snow on your roof, which then melts at the upper roof and in the valleys, then runs down towards the eaves as water. When it reaches the cold eaves and gutters, it re-freezes.
This continual thawing and re-freezing process creates ice dams.
The results of ice dams can be disastrous.
Water back up under the roof shingles or behind the fascia boards can soak through the roof decking or sheathing, damaging your attic, insulation, inside ceiling, walls – and even the valuables inside your home.
Juffs Roofing Ltd has been serving the greater Toronto area for over 30 years.
The company was founded in 1979 by second-generation roofer Mike Juffs. He personally trained the current President of Juffs Roofing, Stephen Meltz.
Rather than offering “quickie” band aid solutions, Juffs Roofing takes a holistic approach. We believe on fixing your roofing problems right the first time, so they never happen again.
The company has evolved over the years to meet the needs of our customers. That’s why we launched our Mr. Roof Repair division. This 24 hour emergency roofing service focuses on fast, affordable, reliable roof repairs “from the eaves up.”
Our newest division, Rooftop Snow Removal, specializes in one of the most urgent problems facing our clients. Snow covered roofs look charming, but unless snow is removed quickly and professionally, home- and business owners risk serious problems — everything from ice dams and dangerous icicle formations to complete, catastrophic roof collapses.
