Freezing temperatures and heavy snow can be havoc on your home. It is important to take care of your home to prevent additional wear and tear on your home’s structure.

The accumulation and weight of snow on your roof can cause severe dam- age to while eliminating water damage as well to your roof and shingles. Removing snow from your roof can help lessen the likelihood of water damage and ice dams to the structure. Using a Roof Rake is an easy way to remove snow easily and safely. With a roof rake you are able to extend a shovel across your roof and pull-down snow smoothly. Make sure the roof rake you get has rollers that help prevent shingle damage. Make sure the blade never touches the roof ‘s surface.

Another tool item for removing snow from your roof is to invest in some
roof pucks and Roof melt. Roof melt Ice Melt is designed to eliminate the
need to climb onto roofs. These are tablets that help prevent roof damage by
melting through ice dams and allowing water to drain safely. They work ef-
fectively in temperatures down to -25 degree Fahrenheit. Simply toss a Roof
melt tablet onto the roof. The tablet then melts its way down and settles on the roofs surface. Roof melt begins to work when it comes into contact with snow and ice, the Roof melt and water mixture begin to melt away the existing ice dam. The water drains from the roof to the ground, the ice dam and snow are safely eliminated. Check out your local hardware or Home Improvement store for these products.
