What Can You Do About Existing Ice Dams?


Most home improvement and hardware stores also sell pellets or tablets that are made to be thrown up on the roofing contractors in Bronx New York to the ground. These tablets then allegedly will melt the ice out of the roofers Bronx as they dissolve into the water that is running down the roofing Bronx NY to the ice dam. I have zero experience with these products so that I can't say for sure if they operate as intended or not. But some people say they've worked for their ice dam problems. A few things I'd worry about as a Bronx roofing company is potential damage to the shingles by the chemicals these tablets are made of (sodium is not any good for asphalt shingles), as well as perhaps staining the roofing Bronx with those same chemicals. And even in a base case scenario, this product is still only a band-aid to get a greater problem.

Proper Roofing Techniques For Cold Climates

In addition to making certain that the roof repair Bronx has proper ventilation and attic insulation, there's an additional degree of security against ice dam issues and brick pointing contractors that all accountable and moral Bronx roofing contractors should be taken in cold weather climates with respect to pitched, asphalt shingled brickwork pointing contractors. Every time a brand new brick Masonry contractor is installed, nowadays, an additional layer of protection called ice and water membrane should be installed from the edge to at least 3 ft up the brick pointing Bronx.

This extra layer of security will help prevent leaks if ice dams do grow along the brick pointing NYC. Water and Ice membrane won't stop ice dams it only is added security to help protect the plywood sheathing under the asphalt shingles and prevent leaks should an ice dam form.
