How are ice dams forming?
After a week of snow and cold, there are a lot of homes with heavy snow and massive icicles on them tonight. With warmer weather and rain on the way, all that weight could cause damage to your home.
The most important thing you can do right now, is go outside and safely try removing the snow at the end of your gutters before the thaw, otherwise it could cause an ice dam. If this proved difficult, you can contact us for our licensed snow removal services.

What Is an Ice Dam?
Ice dams may form when water from melting snow freezes into ice at the edge of your roofline. Without proper roof snow removal, the ice that develops may grow large enough to prevent water from melting snow from properly draining off the roof.
It happens by the snow melting further up the roof where the heat is, and when it melts underneath, it runs down to the edge and freezes.
After a while, more and more ice could build up and could freeze under almost any type of roofing material and cause leaking. Ice damming can cause serious damage to the entire structure of your roof.
