Three Signs That You Need Ice Dam Removal

Ice dams form at a steady pace and often display signs of forming before any serious damage is caused. Pay attention and inspect the areas around your gutters on a regular basis, watching for these three common signs of ice dam problems:

  • Icicles growing behind gutters or through soffit – water should be moving freely to your eaves and downspouts, not pooling and freezing behind these points
  • Brown icicles forming – even the smallest brown icicles forming around and behind the gutters indicate a major problem
  • Water patches in ceilings and on walls – this is a sure sign of damage and calls for immediate action both inside and outside your home to limit ice dam repairs

Ice dam steamers provide the smartest, safest and most cost efficient method of removing ice dams from any home or building.
