What’s an ice dam?
An ice dam is a barrier of ice that forms on your roof as a result of melted snow refreezing. The snow most commonly melts because the attic is too hot – a result of poor insulation, or poor ventilation, or both.
Why are ice dams dangerous?
Ice dams are dangerous because water (from melting snow) dams up behind them, pooling on your roof. Eventually, that water can leak through your shingles and into your home, where it might ruin your drywall, cause electrical failures, damage property, and create breeding ground for black mold.
Who needs ice dam removal?
If you’ve got an ice dam on your roof, have roof leaks OR really want to avoid roof leaks, and don’t want to find out how much of the repair bill your insurance company is willing to pick up, then you need ice dam removal.

What’s ice dam removal?
Proper ice dam removal is a process of using a steamer to melt grooves in the ice so as to cut it into chunks that slide off your roof.
Any technique other than steaming is dangerous. Using an ice dam steaming technique other than chunk-cutting is inefficient and costly. The video above shows us steaming ice dams safely and efficiently.
