HOT SHOT #008 BriskHeat Roof & Gutter De-Icing Kits!
Winter is upon us and many businesses and homes will be facing challenges relating to snow and ice on their premises. A commonly overlooked and misunderstood winter hazard is the formation of ICE DAMS on rooftops. After reading this, we’re sure those innocent looking icicles won’t be so innocent anymore.
What is an Ice Dam?
Ice Dams form due to the inherent temperature differences between heated spaces and roof overhangs. Naturally, some heat loss occurs through a homes attic. As it passes through the attic space it warms the roof . Snow-melt then runs under the insulating blanket of snow, until it reaches a cold section of the roof and freezes to form an ice dam . Snow that melts later cannot drain properly and is trapped on the roof . Standing water can then enter a home or business causing significant property damage .
Icicles on overhangs and gutters are natures way of hinting that there might be a problem on the roof. When icicles or even an ice dam breaks free, it can cause significant harm to customers and employees, vehicles, landscaping, etc., furthermore, dripping ice causes slippery walkways leading to possible injuries.
Weight of the ice can even pull gutters away from the roof, exposing the wood fascia to even more damage and dripping water hazards.
