Snow Snow no More Snow

Today's snow wasn't two bad. Hopefully the next storm will turn out to be the same. I know people who plow need it. But us contractors that Roof don't. Home Depot is out of shovels and out of salt. So that means someone is working. I don't know how people who have lost everything have done it. These past weeks have been so stressful. Last year's snow brought in alot of money so I know the snow can bring a profit. We removed alot of snow from flat roofs last year. It took digging overnight for many nights. At times it was even dangours. Getting the snow off a flat roof is very important. To much snow weight can cause the roof to clapse very quickly. Cleaning snow at home is also important. A great product is Morton Melters. The have alot of different products, the best one for me is the is the pet friendly one since I do own pets. Also a great way to melt ice off a roof is  calcium chloride will eventually melt through the snow and ice and create a channel for water to flow down into the gutters or off the roof. They also sell a product called roofmelt. You toss the tablets onto the roof and it starts to melt the snow and ice off. Great product.
