According to experts' opinion and reviews, some high-quality roof rakes include the 21-Foot Garelick snow roof rake, the TrueTemper roof rake with adjustable and telescoping handle and the Avalanche snow rake with 24-inch wide head. The Snow Pro and Roof Brum rakes with a telescoping handle are also highly rated.
MinnSnowta Dynamo Roof Razor and other models of Garelick, Avalanche and True Temper have received favorable reviews. Soft snow rakes like Roof Brum and Snow Pro are designed for use on delicate surfaces like solar panels, awnings and vehicles.
Experts advise that the best roof rake needs to be shingle-safe with wheels on the head to keep the blade off the roof, and the handle needs to be bent slightly for ease of use. Lightweight materials for the handle like plastic or aluminium are the best; telescoping handles are an added advantage. Roof rakes with adjustable handles and additional extension help rake at different lengths.
