Unlike many other cities in Ontario, Ottawa does not rest on Lake Ontario’s shores. This can cause the semi-continental climate in our nation's capital city to be unpredictable. The position of Ottawa affects its climate in numerous ways, causing long, hot, humid summers and bitter, snowy winters.
Ottawa’s wild weather changes can increase wear and tear on your home’s roof. For this reason, many smart Ottawa homeowners are upgrading their home’s roofs to metal roofing -a more lasting option when looking to replace a roof.
Ottawa and Nepean (West-Ottawa) normally experience higher levels of snow in winter when compared to other large Canadian cities to the south, like Toronto. Ottawa on average sees a depth at least 1 cm of accumulated precipitation on most days of winter and total snowfall normally adds up to 175.4cm over the season - some snowfalls can be as deep as 357cm! With snowfalls as heavy and unpredictable as Ottawa’s, this can cause a lot of complications for roofing - especially asphalt and flat roofs which can become vulnerable to ice damming (an ice dam is an ice buildup on roofs of buildings which may cause water damage to the building and contents if the water leaks through the roof). The resulting repairs can get fairly expensive and paying for preventative work like roof snow removal isn't cheap.
With the effects of global warming and climate change, chances are that Ottawa’s weather will be seeing more and more snowfall and freezing rain each year. Will your current roof be able to stand up against the unpredictable winters in Ottawa?
