With all this snow mixing with attic air leaks, many homes in Maine are seeing ice dams form on their roofs. It's important to get rid of them as they add presure to the building's roof.
Myth: The long term solution for ice dams is to call a roofer.
Fact: Ice dams aren’t a roofing problem. Ice dams form when attics are unintentionally heated by air leaks and/or insufficient insulation. You can reduce the risk of ice dams by sealing attic air leaks and adding insulation. Find out about how to get $1,500 towards solving your ice dam problem here: http://
