Dusyk & Barlow is reminding homeowners to protect their homes against damage caused by ice dams.
“Ice dams can cause considerable property damage. If an ice dam forms and water enters the attic, it can damage the roof, ceilings, walls and contents of your home,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI CANADA. “That's why it's so important to take steps to prevent an ice dam from forming in the first place.”
Preventative measures to protect your home from damage caused by ice dams include:
- Keep the amount of snow on your roof to a minimum. Use a roof rake or hire a professional to clear the snow away - for safety reasons, don't go up on the roof yourself.
- Keep gutters and downspouts free of snow, ice buildup and icicles so there's a ready path for melting snow and ice to drain.
- Ensure your attic is properly insulated and ventilated to prevent heat from inside your home from leaking into the attic and causing snow on the roof to melt. A roofing contractor can provide assistance if needed.
- In the fall, clean leaves and debris from your home's gutters and downspouts to allow melting snow to flow as intended.
If you have an ice dam causing damage to your home, contact Dusyk and Barlow right away.
