Frigid temperatures don’t exactly create the ideal setting to make outdoor home repairs. However, when the alternative is expensive damage to both your exterior and interior, you may just need to bundle up and bear the burden.
While the hope is your outdoor to-do list is limited to shoveling snow and warming up the car, the deep freeze of winter may mean ice dams on your roof need your immediate attention.
Ice dams happen when a hunk of ice forms at the edge of the roof line and blocks the drainage of melting snow and water into your gutters. In addition to putting your gutters and downspouts at risk for damage, the standing water caught in the dam can leak into the interior of your home causing the need for structural repairs to your roof, ceiling, and walls. And if the excess moisture is not addressed, this can also cause unwanted mold and mildew to form.
To keep you out of the cold for any longer than you need to be (or, better yet, all together!), we’ve compiled a few fast remedies to tackle ice dams before they lead to the need for large scale restoration efforts.
Remember that while these quick fixes can address the ice dam issue, most are more of a Band-Aid fix than a long term cure. Stop ice dams from ever forming by addressing the root causes of your roof problems. Skilled, professional roof experts can assess your roof and provide solutions your home needs.
