Ice Dams

It’s that time of year again where you should take precautions for protecting your roof. Winter weather can cause a lot of damage to your roof. One common way damage is done is by ice dams. Ice dams are formations of ice, which can create a large, massive pond of water behind the blockage. These can be created from accumulation of snow.

Ice dams can cause major damage to your roof and gutters. Not only can these be dangerous to your home, but icicles can eventually form if this problem isn’t taken care of properly. Once the water gets inside the home it can form dangerous mold. Not to mention that a roof can only hold so much weight before it gives.

A way to stop ice dams is by heated panels.
