Roof Ice Dams 101
In a few short months, winter will arrive with full force in Michigan, bringing with it freezing temperatures, heavy snow and blustering wind. But Michigan weather can be quite fickle, so the impending season might also mean mild temperatures and melting snow. Frequent fluctuations in weather often result in dangerous ice dams, or thick ridges of solid ice that build up along the eaves. Ice dams may look pretty but, pose a serious hazard to your home or commercial property. Ice dams can cause a host of problems, including:
- Damage to your roof, gutters and insulation
- Mold and mildew growth due to condensation build up in holes on your roof
- Bodily harm to passers by should a chunk of ice break off and fall to the ground below
