Warm weather, melting snow, colder evening temps…here come the Ice Dams!


Yep, it’s that time of year again.  We have waited all winter to see temps in the upper 30’s and above, but temps are still falling below the freezing mark of 32 degrees at night.  What does this mean for your roof?  You got it…ICE DAMS!!! What danger these can do not only to your roof, but also your pocket-book.

One way to avoid ice dams building up  is to remove the snow on your roof.  You can purchase roof rakes at many local hardware stores or big box stores.  These will help you while on solid ground be able to reach up on your roof and remove the snow that is piling up and causing the moisture to remain in the evening and refreeze.

If these dams are not taken care of immediately, they can eventually become large enough that the water will have nowhere to go but inside your home.  This may cause damage to your sheet rock, carpet, tile, insulation and any items in its path.

There are companies out there that will remove the ice dams and keep your roof & home in good condition.  So take a little time, look up and avoid a costly situation.
