With the temps starting to warm up this week, is it better to get the snow off your roof or leave it on? I'm worried about all the possible ice dams as the gutter are already full of snow and ice. I've got about a 2' of snow drift on the south side of our roof. Thanks!!
Saw a report on the news regarding this. You definitely want to break the ice off the gutter along the bottom where the roof meets the gutter. Otherwise, the melting ice has nowhere to go except to back up under your shingles, and into your house.
