Ice Dam Removal Services

Serving the Buffalo Metro Area and Western NY

Ice dams are caused when poor attic insulation allows heat to rise through your attic and melt the snow on your roof. The water runs down to the overhang where it freezes and causes a dam. Now as the snow continues to melt, the water has nowhere to go and is trapped. It can soak through and enter your house in a number of ways. It is likely to cause structural damage and mold problems. The best was to prevent ice dams is to keep your gutters cleaned and use some form of gutter protection to reduce the accumulation of snow and ice inside the gutter.
