Roof Leaks and Ice Dams

Did you know that one of the causes of roof leaks is ICE DAMS? Generally, ice dams (ridges of ice) form at the eave’s edge, as well as in the valleys. The ice prevents the melting snow from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can can leak into the home, causing damage to ceilings, walls, insulation and other areas.
