At first glance, the business of removing snow and ice from roofs appears to be very simple. Buy shovel and ladder, check. Shovel the roof, check. Done. But many homeowners learned tough lessons applying this logic. From injuries to fires to damaged roofs and broken windows, hiring the wrong company can be expensive and frustrating.
Roof Shoveling Procedures
There are two common methods for removing snow from roofs, raking and shoveling. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. No matter what the method used, the most important thing is to make certain you remove the snow from the ridge down to the eave and not just the bottom few feet. Our typical shoveling crew consists of two people working from both ladders and rope and harness rigs. We work from high areas to low areas. We shovel aside snow that lands on walkways, driveways and steps. You can always expect our people to be polite, professional and hardworking.
