Ice Dam Removal Services
Properly Installed Roofing and Gutters Keep Your Home Protected in the Winter
Emmons Roofing & Siding is a leading home improvement contractor serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and ice dams are a problem that we encounter each winter. Our company not only specializes in ice dam removal but can help you ensure that ice dams never happen again.
There are several key factors in preventing ice dams. These include roofing and gutters that are properly installed and well maintained. Another factor is attic ventilation since a lack of airflow leads to uneven roof temperatures, and even inadequate attic insulation can lead to needing ice dam removal services because water can melt and then refreeze very quickly. Contact the experts at Emmons today for help safeguarding your home during the winter.

What Are Ice Dams?
Ice can accumulate at the edge of your roof, and that accumulation can extend into the gutter where it will cause a clog and perhaps damage the gutter itself. But the potential for damage is actually much more severe than that. The ice buildup can form a dam that traps water as snow and ice melts. That trapped water can undermine your shingles. It can also get under the shingles to the underlayment and structure below. As it melts and refreezes it can cause significant damage to your home.

How to Prevent the Need for Ice Dam Removal
Professional ice dam removal treats the symptom and not the underlying cause. While we are happy to provide the removal services you require, our main goal is to help you avoid the problem in the future. There are four core factors that we will inspect that can affect the temperature of a roof and how it sheds water. Inadequate attic ventilation and improperly installed roofing systems are the leading causes of ice dams. Insufficient attic insulation is a potential reason, and a fourth possible cause is the installation or maintenance of the gutters themselves.
Ice dams often occur when the roof temperature is not uniform. The leading cause of uneven roof temperatures is inadequate attic ventilation. Improving airflow not only helps to keep your roof a consistent temperature, but it makes it easier to heat your home. At Emmons, we install a wide range of vents, turbines and other solutions that will allow your roof to get the air circulation it needs.
The need for ice dam removal can also be the result of roofing materials that were not properly installed. These materials can include the shingles, flashing and ventilation. Such issues can allow moisture to infiltrate the roof underlayment, and that will eventually lead to structural problems. At Emmons, we can install a new roof that will protect your home for many years to come.
Attic insulation is an important factor in heating your home but also in regulating roof temperatures. If your attic insulation is inadequate, snow and ice can melt and refreeze quickly. That can cause a wide range of problems, including needing ice dam removal services. The team at Emmons is able to install supplemental insulation, or if needed, we can insulate or reinsulate your entire attic.
When gutters are properly installed and well maintained, they allow your roof to shed water in a manner that avoids ice buildup. When ice dam removal services are required, it’s not uncommon for it to be due to gutters that are clogged, damaged or poorly designed. We are able to repair gutter problems, and if the system is compromised, we can design a new gutter system and install it on your home.
Protect Your Home and Your Family This Winter
If you experience ice dams this winter, it is imperative that you call Emmons at 1-856-885-6677 for ice dam removal services as soon as possible. But be mindful that while removal will overcome your problems in the short term, those issues will likely manifest again unless you resolve the cause. This can damage your roof, fascia, gutters and so forth. In addition, that moisture will eventually reach the underlayment where it can lead to water damage and mold. It is also important to note that accumulated ice is a hazard that can fall and harm someone who walks underneath.
