Ice damming is usually first noticed when large icicles develop over the edge of the roof, over the gutters, and hanging don over pedestrian areas. Underneath the gutter is a backup of water, which was snow before it melted. Water often leaks into the home when you have an ice dam. This creates moisture where it doesn’t belong. this can lead to mildew and mold, which will sooner or later cause your fascia board to rot and water to leak into your home’s interior. Repairing such damage can be overwhelming and expensive ! ice and water damage may not only reduce the beauty of your home, but can also become a safety issue.
