Frozen gutters and icicles hanging from your roof eaves are telltale signs of ice dams. An ice dam on your roof can cause damage to shingles, resulting in water leaks in your attic and damage to drywall, furniture, and flooring inside your home. Ice damming occurs when heat from inside your attic warms the underside of the roof and causes snow and ice on the roof to melt. This allows water to run down the roof and freeze near the colder edges, eventually forming heaps of snow and ice. The new formed ice traps water and it seeps under the shingles causing the ceilings and walls in your home to become wet and stained. Attic insulation is needed to help alleviate this problem; with the right attic insulation you can be on you way to removing ice dams. Our insulation contractors look for key things when solving your ice damming problem such as, cracks and openings allowing air leaks, not enough ceiling insulation, improper ventilation systems, or damaged attic insulation not working efficiently.
