What is an Ice Dam?

An Ice Dam is a lump or chunk of ice that can form at the edge of your roof in winter and colder, snowy conditions. Ice Dams damage both your roof and the inside of your home, as well as your gutters and downspouts.

An ice dam forms when the roof over your house or attic gets warm enough to melt the underside layer of snow on the roof. The water trickles down between the layer of snow and the shingles until it reaches the eave of the roof. The eave of the roof stays cold because it extends beyond the side of the house. That is where the water freezes and gradually grows into a chuck of ice.

If your roof has a flatter pitch it is even easier for an ice dam to set in. Gutters at the eaves can also trap snow and ice. If snow and ice builds up enough in the gutter, it can provide a foundation for an ice dam.

Ice Dams can cause serious damage. It will cause a backup and will drip into the insulation and down into the ceilings and walls beneath the eave. This can ruin sheetrock, paint, and even gutters and shingles if the ice dam breaks off. If the Ice Dam does break off, it can seriously damage anything it lands on such as your car, property, and more.
