Damage From Ice Dams Can Become Costly!
What is an ice dam?
An ice dam can occur when snow accumulates on the slanted roof of a house with inadequate insulation. Warm air may then leak into the attic at penetrations form plumbing stacks, wiring, chimneys, attic hatches, recessed lighting, etc. These warm air leaks are known as attic bypasses
What causes ice dams?
Ice dams form when melted snow flows down the roof, under the blanket of snow, onto the eave and into the gutter, where colder conditions on the overhang cause it to freeze. Eventually, ice accumulates along the eaves and in the gutter. Snow that melts later cannot drain properly through the ice on the eave and in the gutter.
