What are ice dams?
Heat escapes from your home’s interior into the attic and warms the roof. Melted snow and ice run to the unheated overhang and into your cold gutters. The water freezes there and builds up, creating great strain on your roof and gutters.
Eventually, that frozen dam of ice backs up on your roof and traps water behind it. This trapped sitting water can find ways through the roofing material into your attic, causing costly water damage to your home’s interior—potentially leading to toxic mold spores—and can make a mess of your roof and gutter systems, as well.
