What Are Ice Dams?
An ice dam tends to form whenever the snow melts and then begins to refreeze at the edge of your roof. These dams can develop with as little as a couple of inches of snow accumulation, especially if the roof is not insulated correctly. If several days of freezing temperatures follow a recent snowfall, the chances are good for ice dam formation. What this does is keep the snow from melting and adequately draining off the roof. Any standing water can start to back up under the shingles, get into the home, and bring about significant water damage to your walls, ceilings, and other areas. In some instances, ice dam formation can damage your shingles and cause the gutters to fall off the home.
