Removing Ice Dams In Minnesota
Ice Dams… What are they? How can I prevent them? How do I eliminate them?
Minnesota property owners have discovered ice dam damage on the interior of their homes as this water pools behind the ice dam on the edge of the roof and seeps into the ceiling or exterior walls. Sometimes you will even notice ice dripping from the soffits as a result of a significant ice dam. If you are a Minneapolis, St. Paul Minnesota property owner who has discovered an ice dam and is looking for the correct way to remove the ice dam and take preventative action you are in the right place.
WHY DO ICE DAMS FORM?
Ice dams result from the escape of heat into the attic or roof space. The heat buildup melts the snow on your roof which then runs down to the cold edge of the roof and forms a mass of frozen water, a.k.a. an “ice dam”.
