Abstract

Heavy winter snowfall around the country puts the structural integrity of residential homes at risk. While single story homes are easy to clear, it is a daunting task to climb on a roof to remove snow from a multiple-story home. Two snow removal system prototypes were designed, fabricated, and tested which would allow a contracting team to clear snow on a multiple story roof from ground level. One of these prototypes shows great promise and would dramatically increase user safety.
