How to Keep Ice Dams Off Your Roof

By December 7, 2015No Comments

Ice dams may form on your roof and in your gutters during winter. When debris clogs your gutters, the water that winds up in the gutter system can contribute to the formation of ice dams. In this entry, Gutter Helmet® of Kansas City talks about the most serious problems that ice dams can cause you.

1. Leaks & damage. The water that stems from ice dams can seep into your home and ruin roof decking, attic insulation, soffit, fascia, siding and more. It can also cause mold and mildew growth that can put your health in danger.

2. Injuries & accidents. Ice dams often cause icicles to form along a gutter system and weigh it down. In turn, this can cause gutters to loosen and collapse, potentially injuring anyone below them.

How We Can Help

An important way to reduce ice dams and icicles from forming is to clean your gutters regularly. That said, gutter cleaning can be tiring and put you in danger. Aside from hanging gutters in Belton, Missouri, Gutter Helmet of Kansas City offers gutter guards that will prevent debris from piling up in your gutters. Our system comes with a ribbed surface that allows water to flow smoothly into the downspout. It features a narrow slit that only lets water enter while stopping debris. It can stand up to heavy loads of rain and snow, and strong winds.
