While winter is a certainty every
year, the amount of snow it brings varies widely. And when the
winter snow starts to fall our first priority it is to clear our
roads and driveways. We love the beauty of icicles on our homes,
as well as snow covered roofs and trees, however, we at roofrake.com, are all to aware that icicles are a sign of roof
damaging ice dams which can leak into your home. And the snow,
if it does not let up, will put an incredible amount of stress
and weight on one's roof, gutters, and eaves.
Having a roof rake on hand is an easy and
inexpensive way to protect your roof from the incredible weight
that snow can bring. However, a good quality made snow roof rake
can be a little challenging to locate when the snow really
starts to accumulate. We have first hand sampled and reviewed
every roof rake manufactured in the United States and built a
web site dedicated to offering only the best roof rakes and are
ready 24-7 to get them to you quickly, no matter where the snow
may fall. We'll even tell you about the roof rakes we don't
And as our expert customer service team,
can explain, there is a different roof rake for every situation.
That is why we have segmented our site into the following

made to protect your shingles,
roof rakes with slides

soft snow roofrakes, which are perfect for solar panels,
cutting roof rakes,

roof rakes to keep your parts to a minimum, and even
rakes. But our collection does not stop there, we have roof
rakes for school busses, aircraft, trucks, automotive, awnings,
and much more. Some of our clients select more than one
snow roof rake as they have detached garages, houses with valleys
on their roofs or more than one application.

ICE DAMS The melting and refreezing of snow can cause ice dams which
allow water to become trapped on your roof with nowhere to drain but
through your roofing into your home.
The average weight of 1 foot of compacted snow is 30
pounds. New roofs can support in excess of 40 pounds per square foot.
Older homes vary.
