Cincinnati Handyman Provides Roof Raking Tips to Prevent Ice Damming
The local handyman says a major concern is damage caused by snow melting and refreezing under the shingles
According to the local handyman, the biggest concern is snow melting and refreezing under the shingles. Snow melts from the heat in the attic then drains to the gutters and refreezes. As water and ice accumulates, it can work its way back up the roof, under the shingles and cause damage. Proper insulation and ventilation in the roof helps a lot.
Removing some of the snow with roof rake will reduce the stress caused by the excess weight on the roof. The roof rake is a solid piece of metal or plastic that can be purchased at a local hardware store. The extension pole allows homeowners to perform this important home maintenance task from the ground on a single story home.
Philip Pyles, owner of HandyPro Handyman Services (http://www.handypro.com/oh-cincinnati.html) warns homeowners about using a ladder in the wintertime because the rungs can get wet and then freeze and become slippery. He suggests hiring a professional to perform this task if the home is too large to accomplish this task while standing on solid ground. Do not attempt to do this from on top of the roof for obvious reasons!
