How To: Clearing Ice Dams In Spring – how i do it

I have one side of my house that is flat (relatively) and prone to flooding and therefore potential leaks come any large melt.

I take a vid and explain how I clear it. Basically I clear the bulk of the snow around the edges and try to make spill ways through ice if there is ice there to provide at least some exit for the water. Its not perfect and you have to be careful when clearing the ice not to further damage your asphalt roof but I haven’t had a leak yet that I know of…

How do you do preventative maintenance on your roof?
