Ice Dam Damage
Ice dams are the buildup of water along the edge of a roof, that keeps melting snow and water from draining fully off the roof. Because of the pooling water ice dams can create, water damage can potentially be found in the roof, ceilings and exterior walls of homes, depending on how extensive the ice dam damage has become. Water in the ceilings and exterior walls can begin to wick out and affect flooring, as well as personal property within a home or business. A specialized water mitigation company is needed to ensure the proper dry-out of your home or business after ice dams have prevailed.
