Ice dam prevention

One of the biggest causes of home damage during the winter months is a buildup of ice on eaves and gutters, also known as ice dams. Ice dams can form quickly in sub-freezing temperatures, staining ceilings and walls, dislodging shingles, decaying structural framing and causing water to back up into your home or business, bringing along mold and mildew. Know how to stop ice dams from forming and how to safely remove ice dams before they cause damage.
