Don’t take unnecessary chances this winter that could result in injury or death. If you notice an ice dam has formed on your roof, contact RTD for emergency ice dam removal. We offer the fastest, safest, and most effective method of removing an ice dam without damage to your roof- guaranteed.
Improper Removal Methods Lead to Expenses
We’ve seen first-hand the damage homeowners do by taking matters into their own hands and trying to remove an ice dam on their own. Aside from the enormous risk of a slip and fall from a ladder or roof, there are only a handful of removal methods that are available to homeowners- and they are all extremely hazardous to shingles and gutters. Aside from this fact, the methods you may have read about online or thought about trying are by and large ineffective.
It only takes a few minutes of hacking, digging, or torching to create irreversible damage to your roof. Never use any of the following tools for emergency ice dam removal:
- Ice picks
- Or other sharp instruments
What Works Best
The choice you have before you as a homeowner is between good, better, and best. We believe this is a situation that calls for ‘best.’ If there’s an ice dam on your roof, you have no time to waste in removing it. Snow and ice that melts above the ice dam will start to penetrate into your roofing system and make its way into your home’s structure, attic, walls, and foundation.
Our experts at RTD Ice Dam Removal have invested in the best equipment on the market. Our wet steam removal machines do a better job as compared with all other methods of ice dam removal. Low-pressure wet steam slices through ice precisely and safely, cutting up ice into blocks we can then remove from your roof.
Many ‘Solutions’ - One Sure Cure
Prevention is the sure-fire method of guaranteeing the problem does not occur again. If you’re dealing with an ice dam, you may be a believer in the ounce of prevention that could have deterred this issue. Invest in sealing your roofing system. Start by insulating your living space to prevent heat leaking through the ceiling. Vent the area between the insulation and the roof sheathing, and seal up all points where warm air may be leaking.
