Can shoveling snow off a roof prevent ice damming?

One option homeowners often consider to prevent ice damming is to go up on the roof and shovel the snow off before it has a chance to melt and form a dam. This practice should be avoided as much as possible and only done if no other option is available. Any activity involving walking on the roof has the strong potential to damage the roof, rip or tear the shingles and scrape off the shingles’ protective topcoat.
