June 4, 2018

If you live in an area where ice and snow are common, it’s likely you’ve at least heard of ice dams. But, what exactly are they – and should you really be concerned about them? An ice dam is a collection of ice that forms at the edge of a roof. When there is an ice dam on a home, the melting snow on the home’s roof is unable to drain into the gutter system.

Premium Gutter Protection: Helps Prevent Costly and Bothersome Damage

October 10, 2017

Left alone, clogged gutters can lead to costly damage. In an Angie’s List feature, four main consequences of clogging were listed:

  • Ice dams. For areas with a colder than average climate, clogs can raise the chance for ice dams to form on the roof’s lower edge or the gutters. These obstructions cause the water to pool and later on seep inside the house.
  • Foundation damage. A clogged gutter will cause water to overflow to the sides and gather into a pool around the house’s foundation. If this remains unattended, the water’s erosive action will cause cracks…
