Here at Petschauer, we feel it is important to have good information to minimize property damage due to the harsh, cold and snowing weather that is just around the corner.
An ice dam forms when water from melting snow freezes at the edge of your roofline. If you do not remove the snow, you run the risk that the ice dam can grow large enough to keep the water from draining off the roof and then water can back up underneath the shingles and find its way to the interior, which may damage your roof, attic, and upper levels of your home.
