roof valleys

I know, it’s summer and we don’t want to think about winter and snow and ice. But with the nice weather comes an opportunity. Opportunity to really walk those roofs and prepare for the winter time.

Whenever you have a roof that has a lot of valleys, and even a relatively low slope, like the one in this picture then you are just asking for trouble come winter.

Be prepared to use a roof rake on these areas. Also, the use of heat tape is purely a personal decision, but can be effective in certain situations.
