Why do Ice Dams Cause Ceiling Leaks in Glen Cove Homes?  

Ice dams can promote water damage to the ceiling of your Glen Cove home resulting in leaks requiring professional restoration by SERVPRO experts. The ice dams form when the heat collected in the attic warms up the roof and the accumulated snow melts. The water freezes and forms a solid ice dam as the eaves are still cold. As the snow continues to melt, the meltwater backs up behind the dam and starts to flow under the shingles, causing leakage requiring water damage restoration by SERVPRO techs.

It is possible to prevent ice dams from forming if you take some simple steps suggested by SERVPRO techs to take care of your roof-

  • Rake the excess snow from your roof
