Ice Dams Developing
  1. Pretty icicles?

    First, icicles form at the edge of the roof. This happens regardless of whether or not you have gutters.

  2. Ice on your facia.

    Next ice appears from behind the facia (board the gutter is mounted to)

  3. Ice on exterior walls and siding.

    Next, ice appears on your exterior wall on the siding, the trim or in the windows and doors.

  4. Final stop, ice inside your home.

    Although water may be inside the envelope of your home, it may not manifest in an obvious way for days. Vapor barriers frequently trap such moisture in walls and ceilings for extended periods, resulting in mildew, rot and mold.
