Snow is piling on Massachusetts roofs as was the case in 2011. As confidence grows for a major snowstorm on Thursday 2/13/14 there is a real danger of severe ice dam formations and roof collapses. Homeowners must be proactive to protect property.

PRLog - Feb. 10, 2014 - Massachusetts residents, weary from a long winter, may have a little more than just the inconvenience of another snowstorm creating traffic problems and an extended bout of cabin fever.

Snow has been piling up on roofs without any thaws in between storms. These are creating severe ice dams with leaks and stressing rafters and trusses to the maximum mimicking the winter of 2011 http://boston.cbslocal.com/2011/02/02/roof-collapse-reports-piling-up/

We at http://www.guttercleaning.name/ have been working with as many homeowners as possible to get roofs cleared, but this is slow going. Many homeowners will have to take proactive measures to avoid reactive repairs or insurance claims.

If you cannot get a licensed/insured professional to your home, there are a couple of things a homeowner can do.
Buy a roof rake. Now! I have always wondered what they did with last years purchase, or the year before that.

A homeowner can then clear at least 3' of snow from the edge of the roof. The purpose of this exercise is to allow the ice that forms near the edge to melt and drain once the temperature rises. You can view an ice dam cross section on our website.

Use good judgment. Getting on a ladder in the snow should only be done by those who have the experience of being on ladders every day.
