Ice Dam Removal
Ice dams occur when heat from the interior of your home melts the bottom layer of snow on your roof. As the snow melts, water runs down your roof and refreezes at the eve. As ice builds up at the eve, the pressure and weight of the ice push water underneath your shingles and into your house. This weight and the movement of the ice can oftentimes cause damage to your roof.
