Understanding Why Ice Dams Are Dangerous To Your Home

Understanding Why Ice Dams Are Dangerous To Your Home

If you have ever experienced an ice dam on your roof, you may know how hazardous a dam can be to your attic insulation and the rest of your house. When an ice dam causes leakage, you could be looking at moldy or destroyed attic insulation in no time.

Ice dams are a solid piece of ice that collects on a roof’s edge. They block melting snow from draining off the roof, and, eventually, that water will leak through the roof and into the attic. As the water collects, it may attract mold and mildew to your attic insulation.
