3/2/2017 (Permalink)

This unsuspecting homeowner suffered a loss from an Ice Dam.

Icicles can be cool looking but they could be holding onto something powerful enough to create mass destruction in your home, ICE DAMS.

Ice Dams form along the eaves of a roof preventing the snow from adequately draining and creating a backup.  When Water is trapped it seeks way to escape from the very prison created by the Ice Dams. When it has found that opening it is generally in your home.  It begins to nestle in the insulation, until it can no longer hold its weight, pressing even further into your ceilings and walls, until it’s reached its potential.

How To Prevent Ice Dams.

  • Seal air leaks

  • Seal leaky air ducts

  • Add more insulation.

  • Make sure there is sufficient ventilation in the attic.
