Roof Ice Dam Services
Prevent ice dams with a quality roof de-icing system in Indiana
When it snows in the winter, there is more to pay attention to than just the weight on your roof. If you have ice dams forming, clogged gutters, or roof leaks, your roof could be exposed to ice damage.
If you’ve noticed these symptoms in your home, you may want to consider installing a roof deicing system. Richmond Exteriors does NOT provide deicing systems but recommends finding a contractor who does if you continue to have ice dam problems year after year. Our Indianapolis roofing contractor services do offer ice dam protection for the interior of your home by adding protective Ice and Water shield to your roof. Roof ice melt services can help prevent ice dams from forming on your roof, but the only way to ensure you won’t experience interior damage to your home is to install Ice and Water shield on your roof eaves. Richmond Exteriors can install the shield to protect your home but there are other issues related to ice dams. If the dam builds up enough in the gutters, it can even cause your gutters to detach from your roof.
You’ve probably heard of ice dams before, but you may not know exactly what they are. Ice dams are formed when heat from the inside of your home cause snow on the roof to melt. The water flows down the slope of the roof, but freezes again when it reaches the cold eaves and gutters.
This process repeats all winter long, eventually causing ice dams to form. If you have ice dams, water will eventually be forced back under the shingles, causing roof damage and potentially leading to leaks.
If you have problems with ice damming in the winter, you could look into installing ice melt systems. Although Richmond Exteriors does NOT install ice melt system, there are two main types of roof de-icing systems that could be beneficial:
Don’t take any chances on a snowy winter damaging your roof and having to file an insurance claim. Have Richmond Exteriors install Ice and Water Shield on your roof eaves and you can have peace of mind knowing that the interior of your home won’t be affected by ice dams.
