My roof is covered in snow….

Winter storms have dumped nearly 20 inches of snow in Central Kansas this month.  The average snow fall is 15-20 inches throughout the state.

With Kansas residents climbing up on roofs with snow rakes and shovels attempting to remove snow and ice, there are a few basic tips and tricks that can help combat personal injury and future leaks:

Take care. Snow and ice can combine to create a very slippery surface. Before climbing up on a roof and risking a fall, see if you can remove the snow with a snow rake or a shovel.

If you know you have a problem with ice dams, shovel snow off of the roof before it has a chance to melt, potentially forming ice dams. Depending on how bad ice dams on your roof are and how much water is building up behind it, ceilings can fall in or result in any other number of problems.
