What is an ice dam?
An ice dam is a build-up of ice along the edge of a roof, which prevents melting snow from flowing off the roof and into the gutter system. This can lead to water damage to the roof, walls, and ceilings, as well as the growth of mold and mildew in the home.
How do I know if I have an ice dam on my roof?
You may have an ice dam on your roof if you see ice along the edge of the roof, or if you notice water stains on your walls, ceilings, or attic. It’s also important to be cautious of icicles hanging from the roof, as these can be a sign of an ice dam.

Ice Dam Removal FAQs
What causes ice dams to form?
Ice dams are caused by a combination of several factors, including poor insulation, insufficient ventilation, and the buildup of heat inside the attic. When heat escapes from the living spaces of a home and melts snow on the roof, it can refreeze when it reaches the colder edge of the roof, leading to the formation of an ice dam.
How can I prevent ice dams from forming on my roof?
Preventing ice dams from forming on your roof requires addressing the underlying causes of ice dam formation, such as poor insulation and ventilation. This can involve making upgrades to your home’s insulation, adding attic ventilation, and sealing any air leaks in the attic.
