Common Questions About Ice Dams
How do ice dams form?
When your attic isn't properly insulated and the temperature is above freezing, it causes your roof to become warm. If there's snow on the roof, the warmth from the attic melts snow and causes it to run to the edges of the roof.
When melted water reaches the edges, it refreezes into ice because this area of the roof isn't warmed by the attic. Over time, this process creates a large ridge of ice that continually traps water and causes it to grow larger.
Eventually, the ice dam that forms will cause melted water to back up underneath roof shingles and cause a roof leak. From here, water damage can affect walls, floors, ceilings, insulation, and even cause the growth of mold.
Can you prevent ice dams?
The key to preventing ice dam water damage in Northford, CT is to make sure that your roof stays cool or snow properly melts off of it. A few ways to prevent ice dams include:
- Making sure that your attic is properly insulated from the rest of your home and stays cool
- Get a roof ventilation system which will keep it cool
- Use a roof rake to remove excess snow from the roof before it has a chance to melt
- Use heated roof cables to melt snow
Are ice dam water damage in Northford, CT covered by insurance?
Yes, the damages from your ice dam are covered by homeowners insurance. However, insurance usually doesn't cover the cost of ice dam removal.
