It’s that time of the year again when snow falls and the nights get colder and colder. As the temperature drops, the team at Minnesota Leafless Gutters want to make sure that your roof doesn’t drop with it! Ice dams are a major problem in the Eden Prairie area and if they are left on your roof too long they can cause some severe damage for you this winter season. Minnesota Leafless Gutters has all the right tools and equipment to safely remove these ice dams and let you thoroughly enjoy your winter season.
What is an Ice Dam?
We’ve all heard of a beaver dam in the middle of a river. Beaver dams have the capability to block flowing water and contain it in one space. Can’t the same be said for an ice dam? An ice dam is something that builds up over time. After the first snowfall, the snow melts with the sun or with the heat from inside the house and then refreezes at night or when the temperature gets cooler. Then it snows again and the process starts all over. Unfortunately, some homes can end up with these layers and layers of ice. Eventually, this ice can form a line, like a dam, blocking any free flowing water from getting into the gutters or running off the roof as it should. Then the rest of the melted snow pools up just like a beaver dam and there is no where else to go. So what do you think happens? That’s right, all of that precipitation comes down and into your home.
Professional Ice Dam Removers
At Minnesota Leafless Gutters, we are called professionals for a reason. No home or business owner should ever try to remove an ice dam themselves. It is a dangerous job and if you do not have the right equipment you can end up hurt or even dead. Having someone experienced in the ice dam removal process is a necessity. At Minnesota Leafless Gutters, we use a steam machine that safely and effectively removes your ice dam and prevents any further damage to you home. It is safer than anyone that tries to chip away at the ice or even shovels the snow off of their roof.
January is one of the coldest months of the year in Eden Prairie and the snow will continue to fall. Make sure that when it does, your roof won’t fall with it.
