Here is your at home tip for today. Ice dams can cause big time water problems on the inside of the home. When a heavy snow covers the roof of your home and begins to melt at the top of the roof but not down at the bottom by the gutters, it spells big problems. See as the snow melts to liquid form and hits the snow pack by the gutters some of it will freeze and some will work it’s way back up the roof and under the shingles and enter your home. A reason that the snow pack is melting might be inadequate insulation in your home. By adding insulation to the attic the area will stay cold and minimize snow melt until the outdoor temperature wars. Check the others homes in the area and if yours is the only one with icicles and snow melt you need insulation. That is your at home tip for today.
