How to Prevent Ice Dams

When ice dams form, they can pose a danger to both you and your property. Since dams can be a hassle to get rid of, it’s worthwhile to lower the risk of them developing in the first place. One prevention method involves setting up heated cables. You can attach these clips along the edge of your roof, helping to equalize the temperature and stop water from freezing along the edges, despite melting in other spots. When you successfully prevent ice dams, you’re less likely to face costly damage like leaks and lifted shingles. For advice on keeping your home’s roof in top shape this winter, reach out to us today.
