Ice Dam Solutions:

Reduce The Risk and Improve the Overall Comfort of Your Home

It’s important to note that an ice dam is a serious problem. When heavy snow buildup melts during the day and then refreezes when temperatures drop overnight, an ice dam can occur. The melted snow is aided by warm air in the attic space that heats the underside of a roof. We can help make your home more comfortable and efficient – while reducing the risk of an ice dam. If you’re interested in our proven ice dam solutions for your home, call us today to get started!

Our Proven Ice Dam Solutions:

Air sealing and insulating can help reduce icicles on your home by preventing warm air from leaking out of your living space and into the attic. This can prevent the snow on your roof from melting and refreezing into icicles. Additionally, insulating your attic can help to keep the temperature in the attic more consistent, which can also prevent the formation of icicles.

Heat loss: As the melted snow makes its way down the roof, it eventually comes in contact with the deck over the eaves, which are not exposed to heat from the attic. This is where the ice generally begins to form. Proper insulation is essential for energy efficiency and comfort in a home, especially in the Midwest where the weather can be harsh during the winter.

To see the best result, it’s important to hire a local, licensed professional and do a proper energy evaluation before starting the process.
