Do You Remove Snow From Your Roof?

If you live in a snowy climate, you probably know about the dangers of allowing snow to build up on the roof of your home. From water damage to potential cave-ins, heavy, wet snow can really cause problems for the structural integrity of your home.

Luckily, you can prevent these issues by simply removing the snow as it falls. The safest way to do so is with a roof rake, though on less steeply pitched roofs, you can (using extreme caution), with the help of a friend or professional, remove it with a shovel.

We get a lot of snow, but it's not necessary to remove from the roof. Thank goodness, I could not handle the roof on top of the sidewalk and driveway.

Our roof is way too high for us to reach even with our ladder. Fortunately, we usually don't get enough snow where we live to have a major issue and it all usually melts within a few days after falling.

Other. No, we don't remove the snow from our roof because it helps insulate the house. That's not something you see Scandinavians doing normally. Of course roofs here are designed to carry a heavy load of snow.
