If there’s one major roofing concern during winter in Wisconsin, it is ice dams and the many issues they cause. These ice formations that settle at the edge of your roofing system can do significant roof damage. While you may regard them as non-threatening effects of the cold weather, the truth is they can be very harmful to your home. Ice dams happen for many reasons and are usually not the result of a faulty roof or improper roof installation. The main reasons for ice dams are poor ventilation, inadequate insulation, and a build-up of debris in your gutters and sitting up on top of your roof, so as you can see, ice dam prevention is possible.
