134269408 s 300x168 - How to Keep Too Much Snow Off Your Roof and Prevent Ice Dams

One of the major problems that can plague your roof is snow. Whether you have a flat roof or one of the most luxurious tile roofing Livonia MI systems in your neighborhood, it’s very important to make sure that ice dams and large buildups of snow won’t form. The alternative will be that the roof might become extremely heavy, and the damage that the extra weight can cause both to your roof and to your home can be quite substantial.

 

While regular brooms and brushes can be inefficient, or they can cause more harm than good, the use of a special roofing broom should be considered above all else. A roofing broom is similar to a regular broom, but it is somewhat larger and features a unique design, being built especially for removing debris and snow from roofs.

 

Because of its construction, you can simply walk underneath your roof and use the broom on the area of your roof right in front of you to remove the snow almost effortlessly. Before using it, however, make sure that no one is in the immediate vicinity of your home and that you don’t stand too close under the area you’re clearing. The snow can be pretty heavy, and you won’t want it to injure anyone.
