Living in Minnesota means braving the drastic changes in weather, no matter if it’s 30 below zero or 95 degrees outside. In the heart of the winter when we’re buried under mounds of snow and ice, it’s important to keep a watchful eye on your home or business’s building.
What Are Ice Dams?
Ice dams form when warm air from the inside of our home escapes into the attic and heats the roof. Combined with the sun, the warm air will melt the snow and ice on the roof and drain the water into the roof’s slopes and gutters. Typically, this water would be seamlessly be transferred from the home via gutters and downspouts; however, when temperatures dip back below freezing near the edge of your roof, the water refreezes and creates an ice dam.
The constant freeze and thaw cycles cause damage to your gutters and eaves, where the moisture can then travel back under the roof shingles or boards until it makes its way into your attic.
