Any homeowner that has gone through ice-dams can vouch that they are a nightmare to deal with. Apart from the hazardous icicles forming over the edge of your roof, ice-dams have a high chance of causing leakage in your roof, resulting in torn-off gutters, loose shingles, and backed-up water leaking into your house, bring along a whole slew of new problems along with it. That’s why when these happen, it pays to have Derek Cook Construction around to take care of them as soon as they are arrive!
How Ice Dams Form
Heat builds up in the attic and transfers to the surface of the roof, reaching all areas except at the edge.
Snow on the heated area melts and slides downwards towards the edge of the roof.
Along the cooler edge, the water freezes over once again and becomes ice. This ice prevents the water from running off, resulting in the water flowing back under the shingles and into the house.
