What Causes Ice Dams?
There is a direct relationship between the total of heat loss from a your home, snow accumulation, and outside temperatures that leads to ice dam formation. For ice dams to form there has to be snow on the roof, and, at the same time, higher portions of the roof's outside surface must be above 32°F while lower surfaces are below 32°F. For a section of the roof to be below 32°F, outside temperatures must also be below 32°F.
The snow on a roof surface that is above 32°F will start to melt and as the water begins to travel down the roof it reaches the area towards the eves that is below 32°F and freezes, forming the early stages of the ice dam.
The dam dams gets increasingly larger as it is fed by the melting snow above
it, and a pool of water accumulates on the sections of the roof that are
on the average below 32°F. So the water above , pools and backs up behind
the ice dam and remains fluid. The pool of water then finds openings in
the exterior roof covering and runs into the attic space. From the attic it
could flow into exterior walls or through the ceiling insulation and stain
the ceiling finish.
Excessive water and moisture entering the home not only causes cosmetic and structural damage bit it makes an environment where mold can start and grow , possibly causing health concerns to the occupants.
