Ice Dams

Posted by Robert Evans on Jun 2, 2014 6:53:00 PM

It might seem a little bit strange to be talking about ice dams in June , but now is the time to deal with them. One customer in Natick was having ice damming issues on his Campanelli ranch which are very prone to ice dams. This particular house had a addition on the back with a low pitched roof on the north side of the house. This combination is what it takes for an ice dam. Instead of waiting until the last minute he decided to get it done now.The resolution was strip off the shingles and install a rubber roof. No more shoveling his roof this winter.photoMA30984285 0001 resized 600photo1MA30984286 0002 resized 600photo2MA30984286 0003 resized 600
