Remove Ice Dams from Your Roof
Ice and snow are part of life in the Inland Northwest. And because of our climate, ice dams are one of the most damaging problems for your roof in the winter. Roofs by Premier provides a service to help prevent damage and health risks associated with ice dams. Our Arctic Steamer removes ice damns safely and efficiently.
What is an Ice Dam?
An ice dam is a buildup of ice and snow. When heavy snow melts during the day and then refreezes at night, ice dams begin to form. They don’t form over night, they come from a consistent melt and refreeze cycle over a couple days. Ice dams can also be created from the heat inside your home rising through the roof and creating the same melt and refreeze cycle. When the melted water reaches the frozen surface, ice accumulates, growing a barrier that impedes further passage of melt-water off the roof.
What are negative effects of ice dams on your roof?
“Moisture entering the home from ice dams can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. These can cause respiratory problems.”
Ice dams can cause damage to your home. Melting water may leak through the roofing material, possibly resulting in damaged ceilings, walls, roof structure and insulation. Ice dams can also cause roof sagging and damaged gutters.
Injury can also occur when the heavy ice dam falls off the roof to the ground below, or from attempts to remove ice dams.
Damage may not always be visible right away, these unseen ice dam leaks can cause mold and mildew growth inside your home, which are known to cause respiratory health problems over time.
Roofs by Premier offers ice dam removal with steam to safely remove ice dams from your roof.
