It's officially the first week of January and we're officially at nearly 46 inches of snow for the season. For perspective, that's approximately 6 inches short of the YEARLY snowfall average!
The Midwest is no stranger to extreme weather conditions, and this winter is sure to bring plenty of snow and ice. One common problem that homeowners face during the winter is roof damage caused by ice dams.

This can cause extensive damage to your roof, so it's important to take steps to prevent it from happening. In this blog post, we will discuss how to protect your roof from ice dams using a roof rake.
