Whether you love winter or hate it, it is a fact of life here in Minnesota. Homeowners deal with the impact of winter on our homes each and every year. A home’s roof and gutter system can be particularly impacted during the winter months given the cold temperatures and the frequent precipitation. Minnesota Leafless Gutters continues to work full time as an essential business and offers customers contact-free service if you would like to move forward with a repair but would rather not have unnecessary contact with our staff because of COVID.
Ice dams form when precipitation (snow, ice and/or rain) freezes on your roof and then melts and refreezes again and again. This can happen for many reasons, including changes in external temperature or lack of adequate insulation and/or ventilation inside your home.
What Is an Ice Dam?
When the water freezes and refreezes, it can become what is known as an ice dam, putting significant pressure on your roof and your gutter system. This is something that happens frequently during the winter months and our team has the experience, expertise and equipment to remove ice dams and help you prevent them from recurring. In addition, we are able to remove snow from your roof.
Should I Have My Gutters Repaired During The Winter?
Your gutters can also become clogged or damaged during the winter months. Waiting until spring for gutter repair may cause even further damage and cost you more money. Your gutters help move water down from your roof and away from your foundation. This is a very important function, no matter what time of year it is. If you believe that you have a gutter that is not working properly, we recommend that you contact us quickly so that we can take a look and make any necessary repairs. We can also replace your gutters if necessary.
