Ice Dams are a common occurrence in states like Minnesota, but they shouldn't have to be! Protect your roof, home, and family from the damaging effects of ice dams this winter.
Ice dams are formed when snow is melted above warm spots in your attic. It runs down, come into contact with colder parts of your roof, like the eaves, and refreezes. This can create problems like leaks, mold, and more.
Stop this in its tracks by having a professional come out and evaluate your roof and attic. They'll make sure everything is up to code!
Besides having a professional over, you can invest in a snow rake and heat cables.
When it snows, rake the portions of your roof where you notice build up.
Before the cold, install heat cables to melt away the forming ice dams.
