TAG Exteriors wants to give Indianapolis residents a few tips for avoiding ice dams and costly repairs:
- Make sure your attic is properly insulated. Keeping heat in your home can help prevent escaping heat from melting snow on your roof that will eventually refreeze and create ice dams.
- Remove large amounts of snow from your roof. If you’ve had a large snowstorm, consider getting a roof rake and sweeping off some of the snow. Just be careful in doing so! Hire a roof professional if you cannot do this yourself.
- Install heated gutter guards. These gutter guards prevent snow from clogging up your gutters and promotes proper drainage.
If you’ve been unable to prevent ice dams, then you will need to get ice dam removal as soon as possible. Roofing contractors can provide ice dam removal and help prevent further damage from occurring.
