Is your home over 20 years old? Does it have a steep sloped roof? If you answered yes, then there is over a 95% probability that your attic may have excessive heat, which can lead to ice damming. What is ice damming? An ice dam is formed when ice builds up on the eaves of your roof, and can stop snow from properly melting into your gutters. When the snow finally melts it will melt into your roof, insulation, ceilings, plaster and walls, leading to costly repairs and renovations to your home.
