Cherry Hills Handyman from HandyPro Addresses Roof Raking a Home to Prevent Ice Damming
Homeowners are right to be concerned about the weight of snow on the roof and the damage it can cause
According to Todd Wortmann, owner of HandyPro of Suburban Denver and Aurora (www.handymancherryhillsco.blogspot.com/), the biggest concern is damage caused by snow melting and refreezing underneath 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.
Roof raking will help alleviate some of the stress caused by heavy snow on the roof. The roof rake is a solid piece of metal or plastic about 16-20 inches wide and 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.
The local handyman warns homeowners about using a ladder in the wintertime because the rungs can get wet and then freeze and become slippery. Wortmann 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!
