• Ice Dams - When snow sits on your roof, it creates an insulative barrier that helps to trap heat in your attic. While it may seem like a good idea to get the extra heat for your home, in fact, it’s the worst thing that could happen. When interior attic temperatures don’t coincide with outdoor temperatures, heat can build up under your roof. This causes shingles to warm up and melt the snow. As the melted snow travels back down the roof line, it refreezes, causing an ice dam. When ice causes water to become dammed and prevents it from draining off of the roof, this can cause water to travel under shingles and into your home. Preventing ice dams from forming starts with the right attic ventilation. If your attic ventilation is poor and causes ice to form on your roof, don’t wait before it’s too late.
