What is an Ice Dam?

When snow on the roof melts due to heat escaping from the building, the water flows down the roof and reaches the cold eaves.

If the temperature outside is below freezing, the water can freeze and build up, creating an ice dam. As more snow melts and flows down the roof, it is blocked by the ice dam.

It can seep under the roofing material and into the building, causing damage to the roof, walls, ceilings, and insulation. Ice dams can also create an ice hazard on sidewalks and driveways below.

Good people, good products. You can’t go wrong!


I was trying to find something that would be cost effective and energy efficient and these guys did a really great job for me! I was hesitant to spend a lot of money, but it really paid off and the best part is that I don’t have to pay any extra now for electrical in my utilities.

How to Prevent Ice Dams

Preventing ice dams is vital to protect your home or business from water damage. Here are some tips for preventing ice dams:

  • Make sure your attic is well-insulated. This will help to keep the heat in your home from rising into the attic and melting the snow on your roof.
  • Ensure that your roof has proper ventilation. This will allow any warm air that does get into the attic to escape, which will help to prevent the snow from melting.
  • Keep your gutters clean. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and freeze along the roof’s edges, creating ice dams.
  • Use a roof rake to remove snow from the roof’s edges. This will help to prevent the snow from melting and refreezing along the edges.
  • Consider using a de-icing cable along the edges of the roof. These cables will help to melt any ice that forms along the edges of the roof, which will help to prevent ice dams from forming.
