Ice Dam Removal/Steaming Hopkins MN 612-919-4185
We were called to this home in Hopkins MN to do ice dam removal/steaming because the tenants had water coming inside this window. When we arrived we noticed that the ice was running down the outside of the building. This is a huge warning sign to remove the ice dams immediately. Unfortunately the warning signs were missed and water came into the home. When we got up on the roof we noticed that the snow was very heavy and wet, a typical sign of poor insulation. And once we started steaming the ice dams near the gutters we noticed the gutters were filled with leaves. This surely did not help the melt water to flow freely out of the gutters. Below is a video we did of this ice dam removal job in Hopkins MN. In the video we describe how to tell the difference between a pressure washer and a steamer. This is important information when considering a company for ice dam removal. Call or text us: 612-919-4185.
A steamer runs at low psi, about 150-300 psi and temperatures from 250-325 degrees. A pressure washer runs at a dangerous minimum psi of 1000 or greater and temperatures no greater than about 180 degrees. Steam is produced at 212 degrees. So a pressure washer does not truly produce steam at all and it is a lie to call a hot water pressure washer a steamer, but many companies will. Pressure is bad news on any roof! Below is a short video describing the dangers of pressure and the gentleness of steam.
