Avalanche Roof Removal Systems

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having to deal with ice dams on your roof in the middle of winter, you know it’s not much fun. Not to mention the costly damage that can occur to your home.

So what do you do? Throw ice melt on the roof? Bad idea. Climb up a slippery ladder with a shovel? Equally bad idea. Now days most folks grab an aluminum “roof rake” and spend a couple hours struggling to move tons of compacted snow off their roof only to earn a sore back and shoulders.

What you need is an AVALANCHE!

Rather than fighting to pull all that snow down off the roof, the lightweight Avalanche effortlessly slides underneath the snow breaking pieces apart and sends them to the ground. The avalanche is also equipped with roller wheels to keep your roof materials safe from damage whether they’re asphalt shingles or steel.

Save time and stay safely off your roof this winter with an Avalanche Roof Removal System from Charlie’s Hardware!

Christmas Trees are back at Charlie’s!!

Nothing says Christmas time like the scent of that freshly-cut tree setup in the house. The memories made while the family spends time decorating it.  Dad completely losing his mind because the lights won’t blink. The cat launching into it like a tiny fur missile.  Ahh, memories…

Well, wait no further as Fresh Cut Christmas Trees are in stock once again here at Charlie’s Hardware & Rental! Brought in from a local family farm every year, making it more convenient than ever to grab a tree on your way home tonight.

And let’s not forget the extras to go on the tree; here at Charlie’s we have Christmas tree stands, lights, cords and much more to help get you going.  The holidays will be here before you know it, so stop by today!
