Ice dams are common in Minnesota and can cause extensive damage to your roof. If not taken care of, ice dams can eventually cause damage to the interior of your home as well. At Kiser, we professionally steam and remove ice dams for single family and multi-family homes.
An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from properly draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home causing damage to walls, floors, ceilings, insulation, and more.
Moisture that enters the home from ice dams can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. It is important that water damaged portions of your house be properly dried out by a professional. The water source must be removed and then immediate action taken to clean the home and maintain its air quality. For the health and well-being of you and your family, mold and mildew growth should be prevented. If you suspect mold caused by water damage, call Kiser immediately.
Ice dams are removed by a process called steaming. Steaming is the only recommended way to remove ice without damaging the roof. If you are not sure if you have an ice dam, call us. We offer free inspection and estimates. Never walk around on an icy roof or try to remove an ice dam on your own. Not only is it dangerous, but can also lead to roof damage. Leave that to us. We are also happy to handle the details of the insurance claim process with your insurance company.
A properly insulated attic reduces heat loss in the home, preventing ice dams on roofs. Need your attic insulated? We can help. At Kiser Construction, we are a full-service remodeling and construction company. We offer insulation services. Call us for a free insulation estimate.
