As a homeowner, you’ve got plenty of daily home tasks to keep you busy; you don’t need to worry about potential ice damage, too. Now, you can rest easy knowing that our DIY roof ice prevention systems can protect your home.

Snow and ice cause a variety of expensive and stressful problems to your home, both inside and out. Often, in severe weather conditions, snow can melt and refreeze, causing ice dams. Ice dams are very thick ridges of solid ice that can build up along the eaves and inside gutters.

The damage that ice dams can cause can be extremely detrimental to the structural integrity and value of your home, including water damage inside the walls. So, being proactive about effective roof ice prevention before the winter season hits is crucial to keeping your home safe all year around.

  • Loose shingles
  • Water damage inside the walls
  • Stained and sagging ceilings
  • Wet insulation
  • Structural roof joist or truss damage
  • Damaged gutters
