Raking snow from roofs helps prevent ice dam formation and also improves the efficiency of solar electric panels.
During periods of extremely heavy snowfall, snow and ice build-up may exceed the load capacity of your roof, especially older roofs that are flat or have a low pitch. Snow on your roof can also lead to the formation of ice dams or force water through existing leaks in your room.
These reasons are why it's important to remove snow from your roof, especially during more severe storms. Bone Dry Roofing provides professional snow removal services to ensure that your roof won't have any issues with ice dams, leaks, or too much weight.

Snow removal can be dangerous if it's not done correctly, with the risks of slipping of the roof, stepping through a skylight, or having heavy snow and ice fall on you among the chief concerns. That's why it's best to have our professionals handle your snow removal.
We work from the ground whenever possible, carefully using long snow rakes that resemble garden hoes. Our workers are instructed to remove small amounts of snow at a time to avoid being hit or by falling snow or ice. We are particularly careful to avoid dislodging roof shingles and gutters. If it is necessary to work from the roof, proper safety gear is used to prevent accidents and care is taken to locate skylights, dryer vents, and roof vents beforehand. Our snow removal methods ensure the safety of our workers and won't damage your roof.
The biggest issue with snow on the roof is not usually the weight, but rather the potential for ice dams. This is how ice dams form following a snow storm:
