are formed when heat from the inside of a
home escapes into the attic and warms the
roof decking during the winter. This
heat, combined with heat from the sun, can
melt snow on the roof. Melting snow on
the upper roof and in the valleys then
runs down toward the eaves as water. When
it reaches the cold eaves and gutters it
refreezes. The continual thaw and
re-freeze process creates ice dams. The
result is water backing up under the roof
shingles or behind fascia boards where it
can soak through the roof decking or wall
sheathing, causing damage to attics,
ceilings and walls.
