Posted by on in Helpful Information

Warmth from the attic or the warm spring sun can cause snow and ice on the roof melt and cause water to run down the roof. Water hits the area of roof over the eaves and can refreeze. As more melting water hits this “cold spot” over the eaves, it can to "stack up" and eventually form an ice dam.

Water building up behind the ice dam may can end up under shingles, can warp or decay roof sheathing, cause moisture buildup in the attic, degrade insulation, cause interior leaks, and over time cause structural damage to trusses, ceilings and walls.
