MN ICE DAM REMOVAL, TIPS TO PREVENT ICE DAMS
1) Always have your gutters and downspouts perfectly clean before it snows, Make sure all leaves and debris are cleared from the roof and valleys. Run water through the gutters to make sure they drain properly and the downspouts are cleared and flowing. Or contact us, we offer gutter cleaning. Inspect your roof for holes, exposed nails, loose/broken or missing shingles etc. Or contact us to schedule a roof inspection/waterproofing.
2) Make sure your attic is extremely well insulated and properly ventilated through the roof.
3) Do not keep your building too warm in the winter, instead dress a bit warmer inside, This will save money and prevent problems.
4) Run heat line/heat tape in your gutters and down the downspouts and keep it plugged in during the winter if you’ve had problems in the past. You can also install heat lines on your roof along the edges in a v pattern extending back farther than the overhang. Or contact us to install your heat lines.
