Ice Dam Prevention Solutions for Homeowners in Troy, MI
Ice dams are a serious problem that homeowners in Troy, Michigan, have to face every year. Unfortunately, many homeowners risk serious injury by balancing on an icy ladder and chipping away at ice dams by hand. Not only is this dangerous, but it can also cause serious damage to your roof and gutters. If you’d like to finally put an end to this yearly hassle, turn to the experts at Atlas Home Improvement for effective ice dam prevention solutions.
How Atlas Home Improvement Prevents Ice Dams
The first step in preventing ice dams is determining their cause. In many homes, ice dams are the result of poor attic insulation and ventilation, which causes water to melt and freeze again on the eaves. Atlas Home Improvement can install proper insulation and ventilation in your attic to prevent ice melt while temperatures are still freezing. This way, when the ice on your roof does melt, it will reach your gutters and be harmlessly diverted from your home.
Additionally, we offer an innovative ice dam prevention product called Helmet Heat by Gutter Helmet®. This is a self-regulating heating cable that can be installed with a top-of-the-line gutter protection system. The heating cable will prevent water runoff from freezing in your gutters, thereby preventing ice dams. And, you’ll get the added benefit of protecting your gutters from leaves, twigs, and other debris that can cause clogs.
