Roof Repair Case Studies: Ice Damming on Hebron Home
A home in Hebron Connecticut we were called to shovel had an issue with ice dams forming and creating massive icicles, becoming a safety concern to the owners.
On the surface everything looked perfect, a properly installed roof system only a few years old and with proper ventilation. The cause of the issue was insulation in the attic space that had blocked the soffit vents causing heat to be trapped and allowing snow to melt, then freeze overnight causing the issue. The only way to determine if this is a cause for ice damming on your home is to call a professional and have them take a look to see what steps may be necessary to prevent damage to the home and possible safety risks- trust the pros at Millstream!
