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.
