Dealing With Pesky Ice Dams Caused by New England Winters
Ice dams can be caused by a number of things. Most often we have seen them happen because of a lack of proper insulation or ventilation in the roofing area. Sometimes they can be caused by poor quality or missing materials on the roof (such as Ice and Water). Other times still Ice Dams are caused by the weather and there is no fault with the roof at all. To determine this, we recommend having a roofing expert come do an inspection to see what your cause of ice dams is, and what can be done to prevent them in the future.
Is My Ceiling Stain from an Active Leak?
This is a common issue, especially when in a room or closet that you don’t go into much, or when first getting a home.
How To Find Out If You Have an Active Roof Leak
- Take a pencil, and draw a circle around the stain.
- Check in on the stain, especially after a rain or snow storm, and see if it has grown outside the confines of the pencil mark.
- If it has, you have an active leak.
- If it has not, then it may be an old leak that has since been repaired, and can now be safely painted over.
Remember: by the time you see the signs of a leak, there is often damage being done where you can’t see too. The BEST option would be to schedule an appointment with an expert to inspect the roof and see if there are any obvious signs of leaks or opportunities for water penetration.
