Shield your roof from ice dams and water damage
An amalgamation of heavy snow and subfreezing temperatures give birth to the conditions for ice dams to form. Formation of ice dams can be a cause of real threat to your homes. Winters bring ice dam along with it, which is not at all a welcoming sight because ice dams are capable enough to bring havoc on your roofs and gutters.
What is actually an ice dam? When a melted snow re-freezes at the edge of the roof during the months of winter, an ice dam comes into the formation, which eventually traps pools of melted wa-ter behind the frozen dam. The trapped water behind the ice dam goes under the shingles and caus-es leaks in the ceiling, walls, floors, and any place accessible in the home.

Prevention is better than cure in case of ‘Ice Dam’ consequences
It is near to impossible to prevent snow from collecting on your roof. A gutter clogged with ice and occupied by heavy icicles can cause:
- Damaged Gutters
- Broken roof shingles
- Damaged insulation
- Interior water damage
- Injuries from falling icicles
Hence it becomes indispensable to prevent ice dams from causing water damage to your house. And you can do the same by:
- Reducing the amount of heat that escapes into the attic, thereby warming the upper part of the roof deck and causing the even melting of the snow.
- By ensuring that an expert roofing contractor installs a protective “ice and water” shield along with your roof eaves, where the ice dams form.
