Dealing With Ice Dams On Roofs

Living in Minnesota comes with plenty of perks – the beautiful lakes, the laid back atmosphere and the stunning cultural scene to name a few. However, Minnesota also sees it fair share of cold winters which can negatively impact your roof and your home.

Ice damage is one of the most common concerns and insurance complaints for residents across Minnesota. If you are worried about ice buildup or are dealing with ice damage, then now is the time to contact a Minnesota ice damage removal expert.

Ice Dam build up causes heavy snow on the roof that needs to be removed. In some instances, ice damage will be covered under your insurance plan.

One of the most common problems concerning ice damage is ice dams. Ice dams most often occur on sloping roofs during the cold winters in Minnesota. Ice dams occur when the temperature in your attic is above freezing and causes snow on the roof to melt and run down the sloping roof.

When the snowmelt runs down the roof and hits the colder eaves, it refreezes. If this cycle repeats over several days, the freezing snowmelt builds up and forms a dam of ice, behind which water ponds. The ponding water can back up under the roof covering and leak into the attic or along exterior walls. If you are facing ice dams, then you could be looking at major problems in your entire home. No one wants to worry about a leaking roof, a wet attic or water damage throughout the foundation. Contact a Minnesota roofer to stop the leak and fix any ice dams before serious damage has been caused.

Let a Minnesota roofing contractor safely eliminate snow and ice from your roof using proper techniques to help prevent leaks caused by snow build up and ice dams using special shovels for snow and steam to melt away ice to insure no damage is done to your roof.
