Connecticut Ice Dam Removal

Left untreated, ice dams can easily ruin your roof, damaging your shingles and gutters. Connecticut often has harsh winters, with high annual snowfall. Severe cases of ice dams can lead to deteriorating, interior mold, and expensive repairs. Yet, there is some good news: ice dams can be avoided, and solving your ice dam problems will inevitably lead to lower energy costs.

Ice dams can be fixed by using a rake to chip away ice on the lower portion of the roof, or by installing heated coils along the roof’s gutter. Damage from ice dams occurs as the ice is developing or when CT homeowners are attempting to remove the ice themselves. Damage often occurs in gutters, vinyl sidings, and roofs.

How To Remove Ice Dams & Prevent Them From Occurring

  • Do not attempt to clear ice from your gutters or the edge of the roof yourself! Ice, snow and wind make a dangerous task even more risky. Call Built Right and let our professionals do the Connecticut Ice Dam removal for you.
  • To prevent ice dams in the future, make sure your roof is properly ventilated. This means more than just small vents at the ends of your attic. The best ventilation is provided by a full-length ridge vent along the peak of your roof. If you don’t have a ridge vent we can retrofit one on most roofs. Call us for a free estimate.
