Here in the Northeast we have the unfortunate hassle of dealing with snow. We all know the pain of having to remove the snow from our vehicles and driveways, but how many of us remove the heavy snow build up on our roofs?
Not only is removing this snow important to protect the structure from added weight but what about those ice jams that cause damage to the roof and cause leaking. This brings us to the issue of wood destroying insects like like Termites and Carpenter Ants. That small leaked in the roof lets water in and damages wood. The high moisture content makes the structure more attractive for Termites and Carpenter Ants.
So once the driveway is all cleared take a few more minutes to get the roof rake out and clear that roof. It will help save you much more money in repairs and a Pest Control Service Call in the future!
