What is an ice dam?

Ice dams are formed when the heat from a home escapes at the edges of a roof and causes the snow to melt and then refreeze, creating a dam of ice. Ice dams prevent snow from melting and running off the roof. Instead, water is trapped and freezes, leading to a buildup of ice and icicles. This can cause leaks, roof damage, and even damage to the interior insulation. If even an inch of snow falls on a roof, and the next few days have sub-freezing temperatures, an ice dam can form. Ice dams can cause significant damage to homes and result in expensive repairs for homeowners.
