Ice and Water Damage Repair
During the winter season and early spring our roofing repair and installation company in the North Shore will make repairs to your roof caused by ice or water. Leaving ice dams on your roof can be very damaging to the entire structure and may warrant a roof replacement if it isn’t addressed in a timely fashion.
Signs You Need Ice and Water Damage Repair
One huge warning sign of ice dams forming on your roof is when you see icicles hanging from your gutters. While icicles look beautiful, they exist due to the fact that your roof does not drain water properly into the gutters, or your gutters aren’t sloped enough to carry water away from your property. Icicles will also form due to heat escaping from your roof, which is a sign of either poor insulation or a damaged roof. Our ice and water damage repair services include full restorations and patchwork, as well as the installation of an ice and water shield.
Ice Dams and How They Affect Roofs
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 pool 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 (which is also why we provide roof snow removal service). 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.
