The Best Way to Prevent Ice Dams

Ice dams are a common sight all over New England. These humps of ice form on the edge of roofs and cause damage not only to the roof, but inside the home as well. There are several tools available, from roof rakes to ice melting systems. However, there is only one sure way to fix the underlying problem that causes ice dams in the first place — a warm roof, caused when heated air seeps out from the space below the roof, due to poor insulation and venting. Melted snow enters the home creating water damage and potential mold problems.
 
The best way to prevent ice dams is spray foam insulation.
 
 
In the last 20 years, Greenstamp insulated many homes throughout the Boston-metro area and Cape Cod to prevent ice dams. We insulated this home featured below. In the first photo taken in 2010, ice dams are visible. In the photo, taken after the infamous 2015 “Snowmaggedon”, no ice dams!
