Roof Repair, Infrared
Roofer911 set a new standard for all service professionals. After my online submission, my phone rang within minutes with Roofer911 on the line to discuss my roof problem. Within an hour they were on site for an evaluation, and even noted another problem I had not noticed. I was presented with a quote electronically, with a follow up call to review the quote and had roof repair folks fixing my roof the same day. Professional, courteous, informative, easy and fast. Service was top notch and pricing was very reasonable. If I could rate six stars I would!!!!

Some Ice Dam Products Avoid Solving the Problem

November 21, 2011 by - 0 Comments

Did you like this?

ice dam productsIf you are searching for ice dam products on the internet, you’ll find them. They’re designed to fill the niche caused by people who have a problem they want solved, an ice dam. And yes, an ice dam is bad for your roof; if not prevented, you may need roof repair, and if you wait too long, you can have internal damage to your house.

 

When people search, they find things like roof melt, giant tablets like the salt you throw on your sidewalk to melt the ice. The downside is the runoff is corrosive to the metal in your gutters and roof flashing, and can harm or kill your plants. Another choice is a roof rake to scrape off snow, but being up on a ladder could be dangerous. Effective ice dam products are various systems to provide heat to the eaves and gutters, such as heat cables or tape for the do-it-yourselfer. Falling debris can bring down those cables however, which means annual replacement. Plus since they are providing continuous heat, they are 70% more expensive to run than drip edge systems with built-in self-regulating heat systems. Some companies also provide heat cables for gutters and downspouts so the melted ice keeps flowing to the ground.

The real solution is insulation and ventilation of the attic so it is as cold as outside. Additionally, in very cold areas with heavy snowfall, an improved structural solution built in as part of the roof is one of the best ice dam products.

I called Sunday afternoon, had an estimate by Monday morning, and the work was completed by Monday afternoon. They were quick, curtious, and made sure that I understood what needed to be done and why. I would definitely use them again ane recommend them to friends.
