 Snow Roof Rakes for Easy Snow Removal

 

How or when to use a snow roof rake

Snow roof rakes are used for removing the heavy snow or drifting snow off of the roof of your home. This is to prevent damage from the heavy load and also to prevent ice damming. Using a snow roof rake is a safe way of removing the snow without getting on the slippery roof. It is best to remove the snow as soon as you can before it gets a chance to freeze down.

Ice Damming

Ice damming happens when you get snow cover and heat from your house warms the roof.  The roof over the house usually melts first because of heat rising up from the attic but the eve of the house get air all around it and the snow over the eve stays frozen. When the water runs down from the melting snow it freezes on the eve making a dam. Then water builds up and backs up under your shingles causing water to leak in. Water damage can be very expensive.

For ice damming prevention all you need to do with a snow roof rake is remove the snow off the eve. You can do this by standing on the ground with a snow roof rake and work it back and forwards removing the snow as you go around the house. Push the snow roof rake up, step over and pull the rake towards you pull the snow off.

Weight

If you have concerns about the weight of the snow and want to clean off your entire roof it can be done with a snow roof rake. You will most likely need to purchase a snow roof rake that you can add extensions.  This will give you the extra reach and you can adjust to the length needed for different areas...
