Shoveling roofs

I get a call today from a national and they ask me can i bid a roof leak, I reply I cant now due to snow and ice on roofs it is unsafe .The young lady proceeds to say thats ok you can go and take pictures of the house and bid to shovel the snow , i now am thinking she has to be joking because i know she is not talking about the side walk to shovel so I ask are you talking about shoveling the roof and she says yes Well i refused job

HAS ANY ONE HEARD OF THIS EVER?????

We often shovel roofs, it pays then we get the roof approval on top.

Used to do it all the time. P&P rate was pretty low at bout $250 for a ranch but the neighbors who hired us was $3-400 and that was cheap compared to a lot of the estimates they had gotten

We do it often here as well. Metal roofs we typically 'rake' from the ground. Asphalt roofs typically get shoveled from the roof. Pays very well.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

We did several from the roofs too. We charge extra, $35 per man on a single story and $60 for 2 story, for Rope and harness usage. Wouldnt get on private party roofs since froze down shingle are to easily damaged by walking on and didn't want any "spring roof leak" allegations.

Even with rope & harness I despised metal roofs--to slick. Even Cougar Paws are helpless when your pads are froze.

Allure,

Even removing the snow won't help much in finding the leak. You can't get ALL THE SNOW off.

Not to repair or find leaks. In fact I just turned down a repair bid today, because of snow cover.
