Ice Damming Photo Album: Ice Damming in the Northeast!!

Album Description

Ice Damming occurs when heated air from the home leaks up into the attic, warms the roof, and melts snow. When the water runs down the roof and reaches the cold eaves and gutters, it re-freezes. This can lead to icicles and a ridge of ice at the eave. The ridge gets thicker as the progression repeats, and blocks the melted snow from flowing off the roof. Water puddles (dams) behind the ice ridge and can push back up underneath the roof shingles, flooding the attic, raining water down inside the house. This can cause a tremendous amount of damage to drywall, cabinets, furniture, finishes, and flooring.
