Toledo Ice Dam Formation and Damage
Ice dams form on your Toledo property because of a temperature variance between your roof and the eaves of your property. Generally, roofs are hotter than eaves because your roof shares a large barrier with your attic space. Heat from the attic is transferred to your roofing system.
The heat of your roof causes collected snow to melt. As the water runs off, it reaches the eaves of your Toledo property. The eaves of your property are generally the temperature of the outside environment. If the ambient air temperature is below the freezing point, it is likely that your eaves are conducive to ice formation. Water runoff freezes, and the cycle repeats itself, causing ice dam formation.
Ice dams are doubly destructive. The ice formation itself is heavy, and therefore, it can cause significant damage to your gutters and to the perimeter of your Toledo roof. The ice dam also prevents snowfall and runoff from sliding off your roof. This collected water can cause significant water damage to your roof, especially if the roofing membrane has been permeated by the ice structure itself.
Toledo Ice Dam Prevention Services
At Absolute Quality Roofing, our professionals have many solutions to your Toledo ice dam problems. Our professionals can install heat tapes along the perimeter of your roof to prevent ice dam formation. This heated tape raises the temperature of runoff when it reaches your eaves. Because the water is heated, it cannot freeze on your eaves in the short time in which it passes. Our professionals can also help you take other steps to prevent a large temperature variance between your roof and your eaves. After our professional ice dam prevention services, you can feel confident that your Toledo property will not be damaged by an ice dam.
