Ice Dam Prevention for Your Roof

Ice dams can be a common problem during a cold New England winter that sees heavy snowfall. Let the pros at Tyee Construction Corp help you avoid ice dam issues with our convenient, proven, and effective removal and prevention services.

Ice dams occur on roofs when snow melts and refreezes there. Snow at the top of the roof melts and flows down near the gutter or soffit before freezing. As the wall of ice grows, it keeps the rest of the melting snow from draining away. Instead, water runs into your home or business. 

Signs of ice dam building include:

  • Icicles on the edge of the roof or gutter
  • Ice coming through the soffit
  • Water or ice exterior walls
  • Water seeping through windows, ceilings, walls, or door frames

Older homes may be susceptible to ice dams due to inconsistent roof temperatures resulting from insufficient insulation. When heavy snow accumulates on the roof, removing the snow is key.

To prevent ice dams, we start with an inspection, followed by clearing the gutters. We can install a roof membrane that repels water to protect the attic from leaks. Insulating the attic may be recommended.
