Snow-covered roofs can make for a picturesque scene, but the weight of the snow can cause problems. The combination of freshly fallen snow and the melting and refreezing of snow can add to the stress on your roof.
Clearing the first three to four feet of snow closest to the gutters or eave of your roof after each winter storm can help prevent ice dams from forming.
While the amount of snow and ice that your roof can handle may vary depending on a number of factors such as the roof type, age and condition of the structure, a good rule of thumb is if there is more than a foot of heavy, wet snow and ice on your roof, you should try to have it removed. We do not recommend using a ladder in snowy and icy conditions. This can be extremely dangerous and is best left to professionals.
