the last three or four years i would turn them all down but now with so many of them it's worth going out there with a guy or two and removing them.
any one have any tips they would like to share. tool, tips, your prices?
I think i'm way to low at $185 first hour and $65 per man per hour after that.
right now i'm just braking the ice with a hammer carefully and using a roof rake and plastic shovels. i them let them know they need soffet and ridge vent and or better insulation to keep the attic the same temp as the out side air and give them a price for that.
I know all about the heat tape and wire and have used it before a few times. But is there any thing like ice melt or rv antifreeze that would be safe on shingles? I see they sell a long sock you can lay up there with rock salt in it but thats more of a home owner thing i think. I also seen the steaming presser washer but don't think i really need that yet.
Thanks for any info
