Ice Dam Prevention
An Ice Dam is a water build up behind a wall of ice. These can form in gutters and spouts, blocking the flow of water through them. Ice Dams are often created as hot air escapes the house through the attic, causing snow on the edge of the rooftop to melt first.
If you start seeing ice dams forming around the edge of your rooftop, it is likely caused by poor insulation in your home. Chances are, you are spending more than you should be to heat your home as the heat is escaping through leaks in your attic. It’s imperative that you prevent ice dams and stop heat loss in your home.
