From blizzards and ice storms to frozen water pipes, winter brings a variety of threats to any property owner. This makes winter a busy time for storm restoration and general restoration services. However, one lesser- known hazard of winter weather getting out of hand is a phenomenon known as “ice dams.” Ice dams occur when snow melts on a roof and eventually accumulates on the eaves of a house or other heated building, where it freezes. If left untreated, ice dams can become massive and create big problems for a property down the road.
It might be tempting to just wait until an ice dam melts in the spring. However, leaving an ice dam for too long can cause serious property damage. Just like storm restoration and other forms of weather home care, ice dam removal should be a key component of property maintenance.
When ice dams remain on a roof for too long, they can create excess moisture from the melting ice. When this moisture absorbs into the roof or siding of a house, it starts to create moisture damage like mold, mildew and decay that may very well be quite noticeable by the time that Spring rolls around.
