Ice dams are more than just an irritation, they cause damage to the roof and shingles as wells as leaks, mold and water damage inside the home. Most of the time, if you have ice dams, you also have a warm attic. If an attic is improperly insulted or not vented correctly, it causes it to retain the heat that rises from inside the living quarters. When the water reaches the edges of the roof, where it’s much cooler, it will refreeze and become ice. That ice slowly builds up and what you have then is a wall of ice keeping water from draining off the roof. The ice dam build up can be one reason why your roof is leaking. Even worse, the weight of an ice dam can cause roof collapses.
Preventing ice dams can be quite time consuming and tedious if you take it on yourself. Removal of snow from your roof should happen immediately after a storm in order to prevent any possible ice dams. We can help with even the most challenging roofs.
