Ice dams can really affect your roof in the winter. By having a mound of snow on your roof, it prevents ice and water from running off the roof, which can cause a frozen mess. Even with proper prevention, ice can accumulate on your roof. We are here to make the situation easier by providing a few solutions for removal.
Snow Rake to Remove Ice Dams
Ice dams will continue to get worse if they are not removed. Using an ice rake will get rid of the snow and ice, while also keeping you at a safe distance. No need to get on the roof when you have a rake!
Prevent Air Leaks
Air leaks can come in many forms: cracks in light fixtures, uninsulated pipes, or walls with poor insulation. With proper insulation, it can provide protection against ice dams.
Heat Cables On the Roof
This one requires installation from a professional roofer. The heat cables are placed at the edge of the roof to prevent snow from building up on the edge of the roof.
