Icicles From Gutter

How to Remove Ice Dams from Your Roof

The season of winter signals the arrival of very low temperatures and snow. During this season, you prepare yourself by bringing out your thickest clothing, jackets, and accessories to keep you warm inside or outside of your home. However, one should remember that it is also during this season that your home becomes very vulnerable. The temperatures are capable of going below zero and if your home is not prepared, experiencing property damage caused by freezing, hail, and snow increases significantly. Superior Remodelers has the solution.

When it comes to defending your home from these types of situations, you do your very best to keep the temperature in your home warm and fortify the structures within your area. However, some damages or situations cannot be averted through home installments alone. Sometimes, a little bit of elbow grease is needed to keep your house standing after winter has passed. Superior Remodelers is here to help!

We Can Safely Remove Ice Dams From Your Roof

Ice dams on your roof is an issue that becomes a particular challenge. When snow or accumulated moisture is present on your roof and is melted by the heat escaping from your house, the melted liquid finds its way to the edge of your roof and freezes over again. This creates ice dams, or those frozen stalactite-like formations, on the top of your homes.

Though these frozen structures do have the ability to transform the exterior of your home into a winter wonderland, ice dams become even more dangerous if they are not properly removed.

Some of this damage may include:

  • Rotting of roof decks, rafters, and the interior and exterior wall framing and sheathing of your home
  • Mold growth
  • Respiratory illnesses caused by mold
  • Icicles, which can injure your home’s gutters and sides, and may possibly injure or kill someone
  • Reduce the effectiveness of your home’s insulation
