Do I need to Shovel my Roof?

It is normally not necessary to shovel the snow off your roof. If you are shoveling from a ladder, it is generally recommended to shovel an area of the roof no larger than 3×3 feet to avoid overloading the ladder. If shoveling directly on your roof, make sure that you have good footing and are shoveling away from yourself, in case of slips or avalanches.

The roof is designed to handle a certain amount of snow so unless there is an excessive amount of snow then shoveling is not a good idea. shoveling the roof can cause damage to shingles or other areas of the roof. If shoveling is absolutely necessary, make sure to use extreme caution and follow all safety precautions. Additionally, it is always best to hire a professional if you are unsure about shoveling your roof. A professional will also be able to identify any potential issues with your roof after shoveling that could lead to costly repairs down the line. Taking care of your roof now can save you money in the long run!

Caution: danger

It can be very dangerous, you can also easily slip, fall, and seriously injure yourself. Make sure someone knows what you are doing and where you are going each time.

Every winter season makes its own challenges so it’s best to be prepared before shoveling starts!

You can easily damage the roof causing an expensive repair. So shovel your roof only if necessary.

Shoveling snow from your roof can be dangerous, time-consuming, and expensive if you don’t do it correctly. Be sure to take all safety precautions before shoveling and consider hiring a professional for any large amounts of snow accumulation. Doing so now may save you money in future repairs!
