When you think about snow and ice management, you immediately think about shoveling snow off your roof and property. This can be tedious but often necessary if you want to protect your home from winter damage. It can also be easier with a high-quality shovel along with a few useful tips to follow. As a specialist among gutter helmet dealers, Gutter Helmet of Eastern Shore shares what you need to do:

Shovel As Often As Possible

Even if it doesn’t snow much in your area during the winter season, you need to clear out the snow often to prevent it from turning into ice. While you don’t need to do this every day depending on the weather, if you leave the snow on your home’s pavement even for just one day, it can be a bit more difficult to clear out the next day. This is because, by that time, the snow has already stuck to the ground overnight and turned into ice and can also become a slipping hazard.

Clear Ice Dams From Your Gutters

Your roof can accumulate a lot of snow and ice during the winter, so if they start to form ice dams, make sure to clear them out by knocking them down with a broom or pole. Be careful when you do this, as the ice dams can fall onto you and get injured. They can also fall directly into an outdoor HVAC unit and cause damage!

Also, you need to be careful when removing icicles from gutters. They can be full of ice and can come down along with the ice dams. If you want to prevent ice from forming on your gutters, consider installing our Gutter Helmet system along with Helmet Heat®. They can keep your gutters warm enough just so the snow can melt and drain properly through your downspouts!
