Protect your gutters from ice dams
Icicles can be a sign of an ice dam on your gutters. You may ask yourself, how does that affect my home? Well, the dam build up on a roof can cause water to pool behind it and leak into your home. Also, melted water from the warm roof can back up behind it, flows under the shingles, and into the house. Below are a few tips to help prevent an ice dam in your gutters during the winter weather ahead.
-Add insulation in your attic
-Remove attic heat sources
-Insulate attic access door
-Check the exhausts
-Check flashing around chimney
