Understanding Ice Dams & Prevention
You have to enjoy snow, at least a little bit, in order to live in Minnesota. Winter is a time to be jolly and spend time with your family. You also get to build snowmen and create snow angels on the ground. Unfortunately, snow melts, and that may cause some problems for homeowners, such as the dreaded ice dams. Snow dams begin to form as soon as the ice and snow begin to melt. This causes the surrounding ice and snow to have nowhere to go when it melts. It cannot come off the roof and will just sit there. The water being backed up by the dam can seep into a home or other building and damage ceilings and walls, including insulation. Ice dam prevention in Oak Grove, MN, is important to keep your house in its best condition. Professionals know how to prevent ice dams from forming and wreaking havoc on your house.
