A Cold Roof is the Simple Solution to Ice Dams in the Greater Hyde Park, Poughkeepsie, & Rhinebeck area

Ice dams can pose serious inconveniences and damage to your home when left unaddressed. They can wreak havoc in your otherwise warm and comfortable Dutchesss County home. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to keeping ice dams at bay – a cold roof. Don’t let your Hyde park, Poughkeepsie, or Rhinebeck homes fall victim to this.

Here’s How it Works

Ice dams are formed due to poor insulation and ventilation in a home. When heat escapes up through the ceiling and into the attic, the roof is warmed up enough to melt snow. This melted ice water then slides down to the ice-cold edges of your roof where it refreezes to form ice dams.

To make things worse, warm winter days can melt snow on the rooftop but cannot melt the more solid ice dams. Thus, the melted snow slides down but is trapped by the ice dam. This pool of water accumulates, seeps into the shingles of your roof and eventually penetrates your ceiling and walls. If this occurs, your roof will likely need to be repaired.  To protect your Hyde park, Poughkeepsie, or Rhinebeck home from extensive snow be sure to check out our Snow Management Systems.
