Help with Ice Dams

Ice dams can cause major damage to a home. Roof leaks, gutter failure and foundation damage can all occur due to ice dams!
After that wicked winter storm hits, you'll want to prevent any possible (or further) damage from the ice and snow.

Roof tips: Long icicles hanging from your gutters are a warning sign of possible ice dams on your roof. An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off the roof. This can cause serious roof damage.

Here's how to deal with ice dams:

Remove snow from the roof.
Chip away at the ice.
Call a professional. Removing an ice dam can be quite dangerous if you do it yourself. Ensure you hire a professional, like ourselves, with experience and great references!
Properly ventilate and insulate the attic. The main cause of ice dams is an overly warm attic.

Don’t wait until the ice dams cause leaking!
