Snow & Ice Damn Removal

Roofing Home | Types of Roofing | Skylights | Snow & Ice Damn Removal | Attic Ventilation

Ice dams are caused when warm air escapes into your attic and heats the underside of the roof deck. The snow on the heated part of the roof melts and flows down until it reaches the part of the roof that is freezing. (Typically above the soffit.) The water freezes and forms an ice dam. Water builds up behind the ice dam and eventually finds its way into cracks in the roof covering and into the attic and ceiling spaces inside the house. A sure sign your home may be suffering from the effects of an ice dam are icicles hanging from your roof.
