Best Wintertime Job in Pennsylvania: Ice Dam Removal
Pennsylvanians from Benjamin Franklin to Daniel Boone to Rocky Balboa have been down for an adventure. If you’re looking for a job with great pay, you don’t like the local job openings, and you’d like some new scenery, apply to become an ice dam removal technician this winter.
You don’t need to know anything about ice dam removal to apply for this job (we’ll train you).
In case you’re wondering, ice dam removal simply is this: we use steamers to remove multi-ton blobs of ice from our customers’ roofs. Ice dams cause roof leaks and all kinds of other damage. We’re the best and most trusted ice dam removal company in the US because our techs follow great SOP in the field, routinely save our customers’ homes from serious water damage, stay safe, and then do it again.
Depending on things like the snowfall and a guy’s work ethic, an ice dam removal tech can easily make a couple thousand dollars in a weekend, more thousands in a week, and anywhere in the 5-figure range over a winter. The ice dam season usually lasts 6-10 weeks, give or take a few weeks.
If you’re in Pennsylvania you may not even need to drive far. We’ve had serious ice dam removal action in the Erie and Pittsburgh areas (and sent crews there all the way from our Minnesota HQ), and it’s just a matter of time before Philly and the Poconos get hammered with snow and then ice dams.
Even more likely is that most of your jobs will be in nearby states. We’ve removed ice dams in Ohio, Upstate New York, Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Of those, we’ve done the most jobs action in MA and OH. In 2016 we we even sent a crew down to Northern Virginia and the DC area.
The point is we wouldn’t ask you to drive all the way to Montana (unless you want to; we do a ton of work out there, too).
If you live anywhere in Pennsylvania, need a solid wintertime job, and would like to make some good money on the road this winter, you can find out more and apply to become an Ice Dam Guys® technician.
P.S. If you have some buddies who could use a good job this winter and who you think might be good at ice dam removal, please pass this along to them. If we end up hiring them, you can let us know you sent them and we can probably give you a finder’s fee as thanks.
