It's alright to go ahead and cut your roses back. Our recent cold weather should have sent them into dormancy.
Generally it takes a night or two in the low 20s and upper teens to accomplish this.
The most commonly grown roses by homeowners are hybrid teas.
Hybrid teas are the long stem type of roses such as the ones sold at florists. This type of rose requires the harshest pruning; they actually require hard pruning to perform well.
Hybrid teas should be pruned down to 8-10 inches.
