Ice Damns are creating in Northern Wisconsin
It hasn't been a awful winter in Northern Wisconsin but we have had our fair share of snow and lots of warm weather that has wreaked havoc on our roofs as you can see in this picture. An ice dam is an ice build-up on the eaves of sopped roofs of heated buildings that results from melting snow under a snowpack reaching the eave and freezing there. Freezing at the eave impedes the drainage of melting water, which adds to the ice dam and causes backup of the melted water. This will cause water leakage into the roof and possible damage to the building and its contents if the water leaks through the roof.
The best way to prevent this is to get them removed by a professional, but if your house has already seen damage from these we can help too!
