Ice Damming

During the frigid cold of winter, ice damming occurs when hot air from your attic causes the roof of your home to heat up and snow to melt, allowing water to run down the roof and freeze near the colder edges, forming icicles. Water becomes trapped and it seeps under the shingles causing the ceilings and walls in your home to become wet and stained, and the paint on your walls to peel and rot. Sufficient attic insulation is necessary to keep your attic and roof cold, in order to prevent this process of ice damming from occurring. This can be done in different ways:

  • Sealing small cracks and openings to prevent air leaks
  • Installing more ceiling insulation
  • Improving ventilation
