Ice dams can cause major problems when they leak into the home. Water runs behind the walls and can get the insulation wet. When homeowners find water spots on their ceilings they many times can panic but remember the safest way for your roof to get ice of is with gentle steam. We offer steaming services to most of New Hampshire and have seen some pretty big ice dams in New Hampshire in 2017 especially around the Ski Resorts in Water Valley Area.
Blunt force can Cause Damage to shingles Just Watch
The most popular method is to hammer away at the frozen roof until the ice is gone. But remember you are not only trying to stop the roof from immediate leaks the ice is causing now, but you also want to make sure the roof doesn’t leak in the spring time when it rains.
We are a roofing company that has much experience taking snow and ice off roofs and believe me, I speak from experience that hammers and chisels can damage roofs. I have seen insurance companies pay to remove snow and ice from roofs in the winter and then in the spring pay to replace the same roof from damage caused by improper ice removal.

Icedams can cause major leaks into customers homes. New Hampshire is used to tough winters but unusual amounts of drifting snow on roofs can cause ice buildup on roofs in places that typically don’t have problems.
Why use steam to remove Ice Dams?
we know it’s very popular to use hammers and chisels to remove snow and ice from roofs, but this can leave a lasting impression on the shingles long after the snow is gone.
Steam is hot and very low pressure so it will not damage your roof while at the same time working much faster than other methods of rooftop ice melting services. Chemicals can discolor the roof and ruin the gutters ic anything other than calcium is applied.
Gentle steam is faster than chemicals and can sometimes be reimbursed by insurance companies if the roof is leaking into the house. You should ask your insurance first.
we recently had a job where a company before us charged a lower hourly rate but didn’t have the high dollar steamers our guy was using. The customer said our guy did more in 2.5 hours than the other company did in 16 hours. Having a good steamer can make the job go much faster than a heated pressure washer which some people use. Remember if the company is charging by the hour they may be a little cheaper per hour but may end up taking much longer on the job becuase they are not using steamers but rather heated pressure washers.

But for all you people that want to see Icicles meet fire here you go. Please note this is not the guy on craigslist, just another demo.

You would think this man would go out of business, but he told me customers were in no short supply these days. I’m guessing people must believe fire is the natural “kryptonite” to icedams but please keep in mind your house is probably the most valuable asset you own, why would you have a guy with a propane blow torch anywhere near an ice dam or even anywhere near your house? (Come to think of it, what would possess a person even to call this man in the first place?
I guess if you have Homeowners Insurance, Why Not? 😂😂😂 JK

Tip: How to treat Ice Dams.
Preventing an Ice dam is really your best defense. Adding extra insulation in your attic. If the temperatures outside are below freezing than you want your attic to be below freezing.
If your attic is warmer than freezing it will melt the snow and the runoff will refreeze when it gets to the edge of the roof making an Icedam. If your attic is below freezing then only when the weather is above freezing will your snow melt off the roof and won’t refreeze when it gets to the edge of the roof or gutters.
