When snow melts and runs off the roof in the winter months, it has the tendency to refreeze around the gutters and roof line, thereby trapping water and runoff behind it and preventing snow from adequately draining off of the roof. This is called an “ice dam” and while it may seem harmless, it can cause significant harm to your roof and gutters as well as water damage inside your home.
That’s because when water builds up on the roof without anywhere to go, it can seep into the space in between the shingles, gradually making its way into your house and wreaking further damage – and that’s not even taking into account the ice dam damage that can be wreaked on roof shingles and gutters. When it’s all said and done, the damage from an ice dam can total into the thousands of dollars and occur both inside and outside of your home.
