Get Proactive About Ice Dam Prevention

An ice dam poses a serious threat to your roof and the interior of your home. So what exactly is it?

When snow melts on your roof and refreezes as ice on the edges of the roof, this is an ice dam. This is a common occurrence when the center of your roof is warmer then the edges.

Why is this a big deal? Even healthy roofing may not be able to withstand water that backs up and gets under the shingles. Water intrusion is among the worst things that can happen to your roof. This leads to issues like mold and rot and can compromise the very structural integrity of your roof.

So, how can you prevent it? The number one way to avoid this difference in roof temperatures is with adequate insulation. If you have ever experienced an ice dam resulting in the need for roof snow removal, make it a point to get your insulation updated and upgraded.
