During the winter season, we remove ice from roofs; leaving ice dams on your roof can be very damaging. One huge warning sign of ice dams forming on your roof is when you see icicles hanging from your gutters; while icicles looks beautiful, there could be major repercussions behind them!.
An ice dam is a wall of ice that forms on the edge of your room, usually closer to the gutters. When these dams form, a pull of water starts to accumulate behind the ice, which can then leak into your home, causing damage to your ceilings, insulation and walls.
Ice dams usually form after large quantities of snowfall, something we’re sure to get a lot of here in Massachusetts. When the snow on your roof starts to melt, it begins to flow down towards the colder part of your roof, usually the gutters or the soffits. .
Removing these ice dams yourself can be very dangerous, to both you and your home! You wouldn’t want to gravely injure yourself, or create more damage to your roof; so call Robbins Roofing, and let us handle the removal of these ice dams! .
