A: The tines are 11” long.
A: Not certain how effective this would be on roof or shingles. I know it is on gardens and lawns.
A: Having not used the tool for that application my answer is subjective but I would say yes it could be used to remove shingles and other types of roofing. The debate would probably be how long would it perform the subject task before failure. Based on its construction I would say it would probably last longer than many or most competing Four Tine Digging Forks.
A: Pass on the garden tools and pick up a shingle removing tool. It has a serrated edge and it’s angled to provide some leverage in removing those old shingles. It’s a handy tool as well for removing old laminate floor tiles or siding. You’ll have so much fun you might just cruise around town looking for shingles—they’ll need to pry you away.
A: I would not purchase this garden fork for removing shingles. There are high quality shingle removal toothed spades that are much lighter for doing that. This garden fork is a very heavy duty tool.
A: You should get warranty coverage on the Razor-Back forged fork as it has a lifetime warranty. That is exactly what I would do if it were mine. You are very lucky that you found this excellent fork at a Home Depot. None of the HD's in my region carry this more expensive garden fork.
A: Please contact Razor-Back customer service at 800-393-1846 x3535 to discuss replacement of the handle or the entire tool.
