Ice dams are a common problem of many homeowners during winter. They are the result of melted snow that has refrozen at the roof edges. The sparkling beauty of these icicles may be enjoyable until they begin to cause damage to homes, inside and out. This can be prevented by making sure that you have theright amount of home attic insulation.

While you do not have control of the weather conditions that refreezes melted snow into ice, you are in control of the heat loss from your home that causes it to melt in the first place. This heat loss occurs when the attice is inadequately insulated and vented. If your home has heat loss and ice dams, it is imperative to add blown-in insulation in your attic.
