- Ice dams are caused by air from the house warming the underside of a snow-covered roof in freezing weather.
- As the snow above the warmed area melts, water trickles down to the eaves, which are typically colder than the rest of the roof.
- If the water turns to ice on the eaves and builds up enough to form an ice dam, the melt-water coming down the roof pools up behind it and gets under the shingles and into your house
There are ways to remove ice dams(but I'm not qualified to give that kind of advise). But you can Google Ice Dam Removal and you can find a contractor that specializes in it. If you take on water inside your house it usually is not in a great spot or even contained like most water damage. It can be anywhere starting on the outside walls and travel anywhere it can. Give me a call if you have any issues with water "inside your house" .
