If you live in a climate where you receive a lot of snow, you will want to read the rest of this post. Snow can be very damaging to your roof so you want to have a roof that will get rid of snow quickly and easily. The shape of your roof can help to do this. While slopes and valleys add a nice touch to your roof, they’re not effective in getting rid of snow. The best roof shape to have for getting rid of snow is a multi-span gable roof. This is the best roof shape because a multi-span gable roof has less areas for snow to pile up. The best roofing material for snow is a metal roof because it will protect your home from the weight of the snow.
