Adding Blown-in Insulation Prevents Ice Dams Right from the Start - Boston, Worcester, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Anyone who has lived in cold climates has seen ice dams as well as their damaging effects to many homes around Boston and Worcester. While the sparkling beauty of icicles along the eaves of roofs can be pleasing to the eye, they can actually wreak havoc to your home’s exterior and interior. Ice dams are caused by air leaks and poorly insulated attics, adding insulation to prevent ice dams is a practical choice to help prevent ice dams in the future.

Ice dams are a result of heat escaping from the interior of your home and melting the snow on your roof. Then the freezing temperature causes the water running down the slope of the roof to refreeze, thereby creating a band of ice at the edge of the roof. As the cycle continues, the melting of the snow on the roof can leak into your home causing water-related damages such as stained ceilings, peeling paint, sagging gutters, and dislodged shingles. Blown-in insulation in Boston, MA can be installed to prevent this scenario from recurring. Adding insulation increases the R-value of your existing insulation so it reaches the required level.
