Ice Dams in Tully Town
Tully Town Ice Dams
During the winter months many people love to see the icicles form along the homes and businesses. Not SERVPRO Owners or Technicians. We know that when there are icicles forming on a house the night temperatures are dropping below the freezing point.
An ice dam causes pooling along the roofline which will push water back up and under the shingles. Once under the shingles the water will leak into the home.
The main problem with ice dams is that the water leaks very slowly into the home. This slow leak will cause mold to grow along the water line over time if not given immediate attention.
How do you keep ice dams from forming? Remove the snow off your roof to help thaw out the dams. The continued snow melt from the roof will only add to the dam through the freeze.
