There Is Nothing Wrong With Your Roof!
Posted on February 03, 2012
After a long stretch of mild winters, we have now faced two winters in a row where conditions were rife for the formation of ice dams. If you are interested in causes and fixes, please read my article from last year, “What’s to be Done About Ice Dams”. The advice there is still sound. To summarize, get your attic cooled down by re-insulating, sealing heat by-passes and making sure your attic ventilation system is working. If these steps are impossible or don’t help, your only real solutions are to install some sort of heat coil system or remove snow from the roof as it falls.
