2015 Winter Snowfall Alert!

The significant snowfall we are experiencing can create real problems for our homes.  Ice dams that accumulate on the edge of the roof can cause water back ups that do interior damage creating the need for expensive repairs.

This can easily be prevented by getting the snow off the overhanging eaves of the roof as quickly as possible.  The ice dams form at the eaves because snow melts on the area of the roof where heat is escaping and then freezes in the cold when it gets out over the unheated eaves.  

 A recently “shoveled” roof, clearing the snow from the overhanging eaves and helping to prevent ice damming and interior water damage.

Arborsmith staff has the proper training and equipment to safely accomplish this, with a sensitivity to the foundation plantings.  Because we offered this service last year and many clients were very appreciative of this we are providing it again for a limited time.

You would be billed on a time and materials basis for each major snow event of approx. 6” or more.  We are estimating an average home would be approx. $580.  Time is of the essence with this service for it to be effective.  Clients will be handled on a first come first serve basis.  Please contact us via phone as soon as possible if you are interested.
