How To Keep Your Roof Undamaged - Saint Charles Snow Removal

  1. 1. Snow Removal Roof Tools A “How To” Guide By www.GreensideLawncare.com 314.479.4005
  2. 2. Why Should You Remove Roof Snow? • Snow left on your roof for the winter can create a series of problems. If you do not have adequate insulation, then the snow will melt, become ice in your gutters and eventually get behind your ice shield to start leaking into your home.
  3. 3. Why Should You Remove Roof Snow? • During the course of the winter, the constant melting and freezing of snow makes it very heavy. If it is not removed from your roof, it could begin to cave your roof in. When you are using roof snow-removal tools you need to be very careful not to slip on the ice, especially if you have a larger roof that you have to actually climb on to remove the snow.
  4. 4. Snow Removal Tools – The Roof Rake • A roof rake is a plastic shoveling tool on the end of a long handle. To make the roof rake easier to store, the handle is normally in sections that can be assembled and disassembled as you need. When using the roof rake, it is important to remember to not apply too much pressure when you are scraping the snow off as you could damage your shingles.
  5. 5. Snow Removal Tools – The Roof Rake • If you run across a thick patch of ice do not pull it off the roof with the roof rake as that will also pull up shingles and do damage. Only remove the snow and remember to stand back from the roof to allow the snow to safely fall to the ground.
  6. 6. Snow Removal Tools – The Snow Shovel • If you have a very large roof then a roof rake will not be enough to do the job. You will need to get on the roof and shovel the snow off with a standard snow shovel. Note that you do not need to clean down to the shingles. You can leave an inch or so on the roof. This will prevent you from digging up shingles
  7. 7. Snow Removal Tools – The Snow Shovel • Do not use a metal shovel or a shovel with a metal blade on it for cutting through the snow. Use a plastic shovel with as wide of a edge to it as possible.
  8. 8. Snow Removal Tools – Heating Coils • Heating coils are cords that you place on your roof and in your gutters, plug into an outlet and use to melt the snow and keep the ice out of your gutters. They are most effective on the edges of the roof and in roof valleys where snow accumulates and causes damage.
  9. 9. Snow Removal Tools – Heating Coils • If you have 12 inches of snow or more on your roof, then heating coils may not be enough, but the heating coils can minimize ice and snow damage.
  10. 10. Snow Removal Tools – A Bristle Broom • If you can reach your roof with a bristle broom, then this is an extremely effective way of removing snow from your roof. The bristles will not damage your shingles, and if you get a broom with a wide head, then it can act like a roof rake and pull down a significant amount of snow with each pass.
