An Ice Dam is Leaking Into The House — What to Do Next

Posted on 10 February 2014 | Category: Tips

The first step is to remove the ice dam

At Get Dwell, we remove ice dams every winter with professional methods that we have developed after many years of experience. If you are attempting to do this on your own, please be careful. Ice dam emergencies coupled with a lack of knowledge and experience can, and do, result in injury every season. This lack of experience can also cause serious damage to roof and gutter systems. Contact a professional to remove your ice dam -or- wait until the temperatures allow the ice dam to melt on it’s own.

The next step is discovering the flaw in the roof system and fixing it

Roof systems can be complex and many times an ice dam is found in a valley that involves one or more roof systems. The flaw in the roof may be obvious, like improperly applied Ice and Water Shield or a missing shingle. On the other hand, it may not be so obvious and could be hidden from view like an incorrectly installed flashing system. Whatever the case, an experienced and proven roofing expert will be able to help you determine a permanent solution. If you are experiencing an ice damming issue this winter and need advice please give us a call at 847-922-3418. We would be happy to help.
