Darn Ice Dams!

Have you noticed an ice dam forming on your roof? Learn what you should do and how to prevent ice dams.

Home Maintenance Tip – Ice Dams

An ice dam can form when water from melting snow re-freezes at the edge of your roof-line. Without roof snow removal, the ice dam may grow large enough to prevent water from draining off the roof. The water can then back up underneath the roof shingles and make its way inside your home

Solution: Remove ice dam and snow from roof – we recommend calling a professional.

Prevention: Make sure your attic is well insulated & ventilated to help prevent the melting-and-freezing cycle that causes ice dams to form. Also try to remove the snow from your roof eaves after every snowfall.
