What Are Ice Dams?
Ice dams on roofs are a constant headache for many homeowners in Michigan and other climates that experience freezing temperatures and significant snowfall. They are exactly what the name implies—dams made of ice—that form in your gutters and restrict the flow of water from your roof.
Ice dams form when warm air from your home escapes into the attic and heats up your roof from the inside. Combined with the heat from the sun, this warm air will cause any standing snow or ice that is on your roof to melt and run down the slopes. Normally this water would find its way into your gutters and downspouts and be channeled away from your home; however, when the outside temperature is below freezing, the water will refreeze once it hits the cold edge of your roof.
After several days of melting-freezing cycles, the melted snow forms a dam of ice (or several) along your gutters and/or eaves. Ice dams prevent melted snow from draining off your roof, so instead the moisture will often back up under the roof shingles or fascia boards until it eventually finds a route into your attic. From there, the water can soak through and cause major damage to your attic, insulation, ceilings, walls, and other areas.
