What are Ice Dams?
During the winter months, ice dams can form along your home's roofline, potentially allowing water to seep into your home. Ice dams generally form as the result of inadequate insulation in your home's attic, allowing heat to escape that in turn melts the bottommost layer of snow on your roof. As the snowmelt runs towards your roofline, it begins to refreeze causing an ice dam in and along your gutters.
As the ice dam builds, the amount of water that is trapped begins to increase, potentially seeping into any unprotected roofing areas or under your home's shingling, resulting in damage to your home.
Unfortunately, Ice dams are one of the most common causes of water damage in the home during the winter months. Left unchecked, ice dams can wreck havoc on your home in the form of roof damage, water damage.
