What Causes Ice Dams?
An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off of your roof. The ridge of ice forms an ice dam where pooling water has no way to drain. Eventually, this water behind the ice dam will leak into the house and damage framing, insulation, sheetrock, walls and possibly electrical. The longer the ice dam exists the higher the chances are that the water will find it’s way into the house, which is why it is important to remove MN ice dams early.

- There is snow on your roof
- It is below 32° F
- The roof surface temperature is above 32° F and the lower part (eave) of your roof is below 32°
How Do MN Ice Dams Form?
- Heat from the house rises and warms the roof to above 32°
- Snow on the warmer parts of your roof melts, turns to water and flows down the roof to the eave.
- When the water reaches a part of the roof that is below 32°(normally the eave), it will freeze. Eventually, this forms a ridge or shelf of ice. Called an Ice Dam.
- The Ice Dam builds over time and creates a wall allowing pooling water to accumulate above or behind the ice dam.
- This water build up eventually can move back up your roof and leak into your home or business.
