Ice Dams and Your Roof

Winter in the Midwest is a great time to snuggle under a warm blanket, watch Netflix and ignore the weather raging outside.  But, it is important not to ignore the warning signs your roof may be giving you during the winter months.  Icicles on your roof could mean big problems, like ice damming.


What Are Ice Dams?

A build-up of ice on roofs resulting from melting snow reaching the eave and freezing there is know as an Ice Dam.  This build-up blocks the melting water from draining off the roof.  This causes backup and can lead to water leakage into your home!  Did You Know: Roofs older than 20 years most likely do not have ice & water shield and are more susceptible to develop Ice Dams?
