How to Handle a Major Roof Leak at Your Garfield Heights Home

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

Ice dam on a roof. An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof.

Ice dams: Possibly a term you have never heard of before. Unfortunately, in Northeast Ohio, ice dams are actually quite common. When an ice dam is formed, they can be detrimental to a homeowners’ roof and house. First of all, the University of Minnesota explains, “An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation and other areas.” These are quite common during the winter months, partially because homeowners are unaware of this risk.

How To Prevent Ice Dams in Your Garfield Heights Home

If you ever do experience water damage from an ice dam to your home, SERVPRO of Newburgh Heights is readily available to help make it, “Like it never even happened.” Damage from an ice dam can mean growth of mold and mildew, damage to insulation, walls, and ceiling. Here is what you can do to prevent an ice dam from forming in your home:

  • Make the ceiling air tight so no warm, moist air can flow from the house into the attic space.
  • Increase the ceiling or roof insulation to cut down on heat loss by conduction after the ceiling is made airtight.
