In Minnesota, temperatures can plummet to below zero and remain there for a good portion of the winter. The cold climate in this part of the country is ideal for ice dams to build upon your roof. As ice dams grow, they become heavier and put a tremendous amount of weight on the eaves of the roof. Enough pressure over a prolonged period can cause damage. If you want to protect your roof this season, call The Construction Group to remove the ice dams and make the necessary roof repairs. We’re here when you need us.


How Do Ice Dams Forms?

As snow or ice develops on the roof, it builds up a thick layer. The layer melts as heat from the inside of the house keeps the roof warm despite the temperature outside. As the ice melts, it runs down the roof. If the temperature is low enough, the runoff water will freeze as it drains. By the time it gets to the eave, it has frozen once again. It can also build up inside the gutter system.


Eventually, a wall builds along the edge. It prohibits the ice draining off the roof. The ice dam gets larger and forms around the entire roof. Once the barrier gets to a certain point, it becomes a safety hazard and can damage the roof to the point where you’ll have to make some costly repairs. The sooner we take care of the problem, the less the damage will be. So if you notice ice along the edge, call us right away. One of our contractors can remove the ice and inspect your roof for damage.
