Roofman USA Shares the Importance of Ice Dam Prevention

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Is your roof able to stand up against Michigan's winter weather?

Worried ice dams may try to form?

What are Ice Dams?
Ice dams form when accumulated snow on your roof melts and then refreezes along the edges, creating a barrier that prevents proper drainage. This trapped water can seep beneath shingles, causing damage to your roof's structure, insulation, and interior spaces.

Preventing ice dams promotes the longevity of your roof. Here are some proactive measures you can take:

Proper Insulation: A properly insulated house can minimize heat loss. This helps prevent the melting and refreezing cycle that leads to ice dam formation.

Ventilation: Proper attic ventilation is essential for maintaining a consistent temperature. Adequate ventilation reduces the likelihood of hot spots on your roof.

Sealing Leaks: Inspect your roof for any potential leaks and promptly seal them. Leaks can contribute to the moisture that leads to ice dam formation.
