Ice dams occur on heated buildings with sloping roofs in cold climates with deep snow accumulation. Ice dams on roofs form when accumulated snow forms an insulating layer under cold conditions that would cause the freezing point to be within the snow layer, if it were not subject to melting. Instead, building heat coming through the roof’s surface melts the snow resting on it. This causes meltwater to flow down the roof, until it reaches below a place on the roof’s surface that is below freezing—typically at the eaves where there is no building heat.

Absolutely not! Ice dams form based on the amount of heat coming through your roof that melts the snow closest to the roof. As the snow melts, water flows until it reaches a place on your roof where it can refreeze. Sometimes this is the eaves, sometimes other locations.

Hot steam is the only safe method to your ice problem. We use the hot steam to gently remove the damaging snow and ice without causing damage to the underlying structure. Untreated ice dams often result in costly repairs.

Hot, low pressure steam gently lifts the ice dam off your roof. High pressure washers can actually make the problem worse! The high pressure stream of water can damage your roof and shingles, and forces water to the underlayment where it can refreeze and cause even more damage.

Shoveling your roof is dangerous! Your roof is steep, snow and ice covered and well off the ground! Successfully shoveling your roof requires the entire roof be cleared. Shoveling part way up a roof will cause an ice dam to form at the location where the snow was left, because the meltwater will freeze when it hits the freezing air.

Yes! We will come to your house with a 2 man crew and shovel your roof for $129/hour (1 hour minimum). We charge an additional $35/hour for steep roofs (over 7/12 pitch). Please let us know in advance if your roof is 7/12 pitch or more.

Removal of the snow and ice with a hammer, chisel or other tools is likely to damage the integrity of the roof. It increases the likelihood of leaks and can destroy shingles and underlayment.
