Tips for Removing Snow from Your Roof

Removing the now from your roof is essential for preventing the formation of ice dams, for relieving the roof from the extra weight as well as for ensuring the safety of the people in your household and of the passers-by in front of the house who can be seriously injured by snow slipping off your roof.
There are various methods that you can use for removing snow from your roof. One of the most common techniques is roof raking – the process involves the usage of a rake with a handle that is sufficiently long to give you access to most parts of your roof. However, roof rakes cannot reach all roof areas, not even if your building is not very tall, so you will probably need complementary methods, such as roof shoveling that allows you to reach into roof valleys. While raking can be safely done DIY fashion, from the ground or from a ladder, it is not recommended to do any roof shoveling on your own because improper shoveling can easily damage the roofing cover and moving around on snowy or icy roofs poses a very high risk of slipping and falling.
