Ice Dams a Common Roofing Problem in Toronto Winters

Ice Dams a Common Roofing Problem in Toronto Winters

When you live in Toronto, you are no stranger to ice and snow. Unfortunately, you may also be highly familiar with the ice dams that cause you to need roofing repair from an experienced Toronto company. Ice dams are ridges of ice that form along the bottom roofline and keep melting snow from dripping off the roof. Instead, the ice backs up along the roof towards the ridge, causing water to become trapped between the ice at the bottom of the roof and the snow on top. The water can then get underneath the shingles and leak into the house. As any expert on roofing repair in Toronto can tell you, for ice dams to form, certain temperature conditions must be met. The outside temperature and the bottom part of the roof must be at or below freezing while the higher portion of the roof must be above freezing. When you hire roofing repair in Toronto, they will not only fix the damage from the leaking water but will also fix the source of the heat disparity. This could include moving or extending an exhaust system or installing more efficient attic insulation.
