Dusyk & Barlow is reminding homeowners to protect their homes against damage caused by ice dams.

“Ice dams can cause considerable property damage. If an ice dam forms and water enters the attic, it can damage the roof, ceilings, walls and contents of your home,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI CANADA. “That's why it's so important to take steps to prevent an ice dam from forming in the first place.”

Preventative measures to protect your home from damage caused by ice dams include:

  • Keep the amount of snow on your roof to a minimum. Use a roof rake or hire a professional to clear the snow away - for safety reasons, don't go up on the roof yourself.
  • Keep gutters and downspouts free of snow, ice buildup and icicles so there's a ready path for melting snow and ice to drain.
  • Ensure your attic is properly insulated and ventilated to prevent heat from inside your home from leaking into the attic and causing snow on the roof to melt. A roofing contractor can provide assistance if needed.
  • In the fall, clean leaves and debris from your home's gutters and downspouts to allow melting snow to flow as intended.

If you have an ice dam causing damage to your home, contact Dusyk and Barlow right away.

Trusted Regina directory team share a real testimonial from a happy client

The Trusted directories were set up based upon the principals of good business, and the foundation of good business is integrity. Simply put, if you don't care about your customers needs as a business then you will never be trusted.

When Sara the Trusted founder came up with the ' Trusted directories concept ' she wanted to have clear, simple guidelines or ' guarantees' laid out for all to see , and she knew it was important for the Trusted partners to sign contracts to uphold those guarantees (and for the partners to be held to them by Trusted).

Read The Trusted Guarantees here 

On a regular basis we get feedback from YOU the public when they have used the directory to find a Trusted business and we like to share it with you we document some real words from a REAL customer about one of our partners on the directory.


I have always found them to be very knowledgeable and helpful. They always understand what our needs are and are more than willing at anytime to come out and do a review to ensure that our insurance needs are current. As a non for profit organization we occasionally have fundraising events and they always try to assist us with these events. Their sense of community is most appreciated.

Trusted Regina Insurance Broker tip on 9 Things You Didn't Know About House Insurance

 9 Things You Didn't Know About House Insurance: 


1. If a summer storm thunders through and the fists of Thor strike down your roof, are you covered?

Yes, yes you are. This season for Regina has been particularly busy for Mother Nature. Catastrophic amounts of rain, extremely high winds and lightning shows that put Gene Simmons to shame. You'll be happy to know lightning strikes are covered with your home insurance policy. 

2. What if lightning knock down the power lines in my neighbourhood and we don't have power for hours on end and everything in my Freezer and Fridge rots, are we covered for that?

Unfortunately most basic home policies do not cover this, however most comprehensive policies do. Your comprehensive policy will cover damage or loss to your belongings (ex: food) caused by a failure of any system in your dwelling or outbuildings that maintains an artificial temperature (furnace, freezer, or fridge) as long as the damage is a result of that change of temperature and due to a peril insured on your policy. If you are insured for lightning and lightning strikes your house and fries your freezer and you lose all of your ice cream – fear not! Your ice cream is covered. However if a family member accidently unplugs your freezer and that causes your loss you will have to get them to replace your frozen treats.

3. What if an airplane crashes into your house, are you covered?

Yes! Fact, if an airplane were to crash into your house, you're covered. If you're in the house when this happens you have many more things to worry about than your insurance coverage but yes, you are covered in the rare chance of a plane crash. 

4. What if a satellite or meteor crashes into your house, are you covered for that damage?

Yes you are! It's very common for satellites to fall out of orbit and back down to earth. If major damage is caused make sure you file a claim with your insurance broker.

5. If an airplane or car or a fire or Thor damages an aircraft I stored on my property, is it covered?

No! Many people think because once you have house insurance everything under your roof is covered. This is not the case. Any vehicles, airplanes, motorcycles etc. must have extra insurance purchased in order to have them covered. Your regular home insurance policy doesn't cut it. 

6. Are you covered for flood or sink hole damages to your house?

No! Your regular house insurance policy doesn't cover damage due to flooding or that of a sink hole. The former obviously much more likely than the latter.

You are not covered for any loss or damage cause by flood, surface water, or overflow from streams or other bodies of water. However you are covered for loss or damage if it is due to a sudden and unexpected escape of water from a swimming pool or its attached equipment, fire fighting activities, or a public watermain.

7. Would you be covered for damage from an Earthquake or volcano?

Luckily Saskatchewan is situated no where remotely near a fault line or volcano, so this one we don't really need to worry about. Generally speaking, damage from an earthquake is not covered under your regular home insurance policy. You are not covered for loss or damage caused by snowslide, earthquake, landslide, or any earth movement. However, damage from the volcanic ash of a volcano often is.


8. Are you covered if your home gets damaged in a riot?

Again, living in Regina, the odds of your home getting damaged in a riot aren't that high, I mean, as long as the Rider's have a winning record. Generally you're covered for damage from a riot. 

9. Are you covered if an explosion damages your house?

Yes, you are covered for most damage to your house.....unless Dad was trying to be a hero this past Canada Day and exploded a part of your house, your insurance broker may have a few questions for you.
