Large amounts of snow on your roof is the first thing you should get rid of when trying to prevent an ice dam. However, heat is still escaping from your home, and you will need to do more to get rid of your ice dam.
To fully eliminate the risk of an ice dam, you will need to start by sealing your ceiling so that warm air cannot leak into your attic space or roof. After you have stopped air leakage to your attic, we recommend that you increase insulation in your ceiling or attic to prevent heat loss by conduction.
- Anyone standing or working on your roof during the winter may cause damage to your roof and home.
- A professional must be contacted to perform the job.
