Explained in detail :

Metal to Metal

These metal roof fasteners come in varying sizes and head types. This way, they easily fasten metal roof panels to the normal building metal. Their tips are strategically designed to ensure they drill through the building material ensuring ease in fastening and making it quick to do. The EPDM washers seal the metal-binding completely, preventing the entry of moisture and other unnecessary substances that would weaken the structure.

Metal to Wood 

These too are of varying lengths and head types. Metal to Wood screws are made to fasten metal panels with building wood, in building construction. Again, they have EPDM washers with them to maintain tight bindings and seal completely. These metal roofing screws are also creatively designed prevent the damaging of the washer, which would make it useless.

They are perfect for fitting pole barn roofs reducing snow and ice accumulation. For safety, while working either around or on a pole barn during winter, this helps. With their strong rubber seal, these snow guards seal tightly, resisting entry of any substance that could cause damage.

Factors to consider when choosing a snow removal rake

1. Length

When choosing the right rake, it is vital to consider the height of your roof in relation to the length of its handle. Snow removal rakes are extendable, so you should look at the maximum extension length of the handle.

However, most rakes are not very useful when extended to their full length; hence you should choose one that you don't have to stretch to its full extent to reach your roof.

2. Design

​The design of the rake significantly affects its comfort ability and effectiveness. It is better to choose a rake with a design that offers a good grip and doesn't get stuck on your roof edge. Also, rakes can cause damage to your roof shingles; hence you should choose one that won't damage your roof.

Curve-bladed and wheeled rakes are the best at protecting your roof.

3. Weight

​The weight of the rake has great significance on the level of comfort it provides and proper handling. Heavy rakes are very uncomfortable to use and also make you fatigued. You should go for a lightweight rake, but be sure to check the materials it is made of as a material like wood breaks when subjected to a lot of weight.

4. Durability

​Nobody wants to see their money go down the drain; hence you should consider buying a rake that doesn't break or rust. Rakes with aluminum handles and polyethylene are the most durable as they are not susceptible to rust and breakage.
