Beware Roof Dangers in Winter.

The snow, ice, and even rain may seem harmless, but when moisture covers your roof, it hides things from view. Take care, or you might just put a foot or hand on a bad spot. You could create a hole, a dent, or get injured. You might lose your balance. There are any number of ways you could get injured when looking at your roof, which is why you should avoid going too far onto it.

Slippery Ice

You can’t always see the ice. Sometimes, it’s so transparent that you don’t notice it before you touch it and it causes you to slip. Even if you’re on a ladder next to your roof’s edge, a hand made unsteady by ice could cause you to lose your balance.

When the Wind Blows

Winds can happen anytime, but a cold wind is enough to do damage. It could knock you off your ladder, or make you unsteady and cause you to fall. The wind can also damage your shingles. It can be a dangerous thing.
