Ice dams are a regular part of the Winter, but if your ice dam stays on your roof for too long, it can begin to leak into your attic and the sides of your wall. This can cause extensive damages to your home. Ice dams form as water melts and refreezes, causing a large sheet of ice to form and block and water from falling from your roof. Ice dams can not only damage the structure of your roof and cause water damages, but they can also result in injury. Ice dams are heavy sheets of ice that could fall from your roof, damage your car, or hurt an innocent bystander. Ice dams should always be removed by a professional. A roofer can safely remove the ice dam and check for any damages it may have caused.
