VH1 Roofing Ice Dam Removal

We understand that ice dams can be a major problem for homeowners during winter months. They can cause leaks that damage your insulation, walls, ceilings and can lead to mold and mildew growth. 

VH1 Roofing can eliminate ice dams quickly and repair any damages to your roof after their formation. We can also repair any drainage issues to ensure you don’t have to deal with the pain and costs of ice dams in your gutters again.

What Is An Ice Dam?

When your roof is warm and the air outside is cold, it can cause snow and ice on your roof to melt and gather in your gutters where it refreezes. However, in warm areas, the melted ice can pool and leak into your home. This can cause water damage to your roof, insulation, ceiling, attics and walls. The weight of the ice can also cause your gutters to pull away from your home if left unprotected. 

How Do I Know If I Have An Ice Dam?

There are a few signs that you may have an ice dam:

  • Icicles Hanging From Your Roof

Although it may look like a beautiful Winter Wonderland scene, icicles are often the first sign of an ice dam. If you see icicles hanging from your roof, it means that water is already starting to back up behind the dam. You can get ahead of the problem by contacting VH1 Roofing to clear the dam quickly before any damage occurs to your home. 

 

  • Snow Melting in Odd Patterns

If you see areas of your roof where the snow is melting in odd patterns (for example, in a line or in a circle), it could be a sign that you have a warm spot on your roof that is causing uneven melting and an ice dam may be blocking the proper draining of water.

 

  • Water Stains on Your Ceilings

By the time you see water stains on your ceilings, there’s most certainly a big issue at hand with your roof. Contact VH1 Roofing immediately for elimination of the ice dam and roof repairs.

The longer you wait, the more damage the ice dam can cause. If you’re a homeowner who suspects an ice dam on your roof, contact VH1 Roofing today for fast and friendly service that keeps your roof in the best condition for your home. 

How Do I Prevent Ice Dams?

There are a few things you can do to prevent ice dams from forming in the first place:

  • Insulate Your Attic

Having adequate insulation in your attic keeps heat from escaping into your attic and melting the snow on your roof. This is a huge factor in preventing ice dams. VH1 Roofing installs insulation that protects your home and helps you save on energy bills. 

  • Keep Your Gutters Clean

Clogged gutters can cause melting snow to back up and form an ice dam. Be sure to clean your gutters regularly, especially in the winter.

  • Seal Any Cracks or Gaps

Cracks and gaps in your home’s exterior can let heat escape, which can then melt the snow on your roof. VH1 Roofing provides free roof inspections with thermal detection technology. This inspection allows us to see any thermal irregularities that signal heat escaping or moisture entering your home.
