Should I go to to the trouble of taking the snow off my roof? Am I likely to do more damage by ruining shingles? Why cant I just let spring remove the snow??

How much snow you have on it?How old is the house and how old the roof is can be a big factor in all this

If ice-damming is not a problem on your roof, and the amount of snow is less than 1 ft., then by all means, leave it alone. However, if you have more than 1 ft., and your roof structure is "economically-built", then the weight of snow (45 lbs. per cubic foot) can stress a roof structure. The usual reason people want the snow off their roof is that they have poor insulation/ventilation which leads to ice-damming, which leads to interior damage.

If you determine you have to get the snow off your roof I wouldn't get up there. Go spend the money to buy a roof rake. They can't be that much money.
