Meh... A little snow on the edges of your roof isn’t a big deal, right? After all, it’s winter and it happens. It’ll melt when spring rolls around.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but ice can cause a number of dam issues. Literally. As melting ice and snow runs down your roof (typically thanks to the warmth trapped inside your attic space), it freezes along your eaves when it suddenly comes into contact with the frigid winter air.
The water behind these frozen dams then has nowhere to go... or so it seems. Water is resourceful and can find its way into nooks and crannies of any size, and unfortunately this means it can find a way right back into your home.
In fact, every year we see folks with roof damage, gutter damage, soggy insulation, and interior water damage (including wet ceilings and walls). Beyond just ruined drywall, this can also cause electrical issues.
Because we’re seriously passionate about your home’s health and wellbeing, we got to work finding a practical solution to this annual struggle.
After much research, we found a quality manufacturer (vastly superior to what you find in big box stores) of heat cables that we really believe in. They can be strung along the eaves of your home, through your gutters, and provide a safe, even heat that keeps run-off water flowing and prevents ice dams from forming. And yes, our Webfoot team can quickly and easily complete the installation for you.
