Should you be using a roof rake on your roof? The answer to this question depends on the type of roofing material that is used in your home. If you have a shingle roof, using a roof rake can cause damage to the shingles and expose your home to leaks. However, if you have a rubber or metal roof, using a roof rake is recommended to prevent excessive build-up of snow. If you are worried that your roof can’t carry the weight of winter call The WNY Company today and let us come take a look by calling (716) 776-7663.
