Welcome spring with a fresh, beautiful paint job

But first, let’s fix the results of the ice dams

What is an ice damWhat is an ice dam?

Ice dams form when snow melts on a roof and refreezes at the edge. The home’s heated air rises through the roof, warming and melting the ice and snow that then runs down and collects around gutters and roof edges. Since the heat concentrates in the center of the roof, the water that runs down the eaves tends to refreeze in the gutters, creating a rim of ice.

If this situation continues, the ice can work its way back up the roof edge, get under shingles, and leak into the attic and walls. Damage from ice dams may not be immediately apparent. As the ice melts and possibly drips into the interior, insulation can be become wet and lose its ability to perform. In some cases, mold may begin to grow. Paint can peel or blister weeks or months after the ice dam has melted as moisture from the leak in the wall or ceiling cavities pushes outward.
