The weight of snow can cause problems on your roof. Clearing the first three or four feet of snow closest to the gutters or eave of your roof after each storm can help prevent ice cams from forming.
The combination of freshly fallen snow and the melting and refreezing of snow can add to the stress on your roof.
You can use a shovel or a roof rake — but always keeping safety in minds, you may want to hire a professional to do the job for you. Ladders in snowy or icy conditions are never a good idea.
