The Dangers of Removing Snow From Your Roof

We recommend that you hire a professional roofing company that specializes in removing roof snow to clear off your roof for the following reasons.

  1. Removing roof snow is a very dangerous job, a roof covered in snow can be very slippery and cause you to fall off and get injured. That’s why we recommend that you hire a professional roofing company familiar with removing snow from your roof (not just from driveways or parking lots). We strongly advise against hiring the neighbor kid or anyone that’s not fully licensed, bonded, and insured. If the person you hire falls off your roof and gets hurt, YOU could be held liable and end up paying his medical expenses. Hiring a professional company will protect you and your home from this problem.
  2. The other major concern is damage to your existing roof. No matter who you hire to remove the snow from your roof, make sure that they don’t take a snow shovel with a metal blade up on your roof. One wrong move can slice through your shingles, creating a whole new set of problems for you to deal with. In fact, we recommend that you don’t use a traditional snow shovel to remove your roof snow at all. But if you have to use one, be certain it is made of plastic, and has no metal blade.

At New Heights Roofing we use a tool specially designed to remove roof snow. Instead of scraping the snow off your roof with a snow shovel (and potentially removing shingles with it) this tool rides on wheels that roll up your roof, prevent any shingle damage from occuring. This tool keeps your shingles intact and undamaged, so your roof’s life isn’t diminished one bit.
