When most people think of Ice Dams they think of how they can directly damage your gutters and roofing system. As ice builds up, it prohibits melting snow from properly draining off the roof. But, believe it or not, ice dams also have the ability to cause problems if you have a deck below the ice dam issue.
Ice Build Up On Deck
If water isn’t properly flowing down your gutters and away from your home, it can actually flow onto your deck. Standing water and ice can find its way under the edge of the deck and against the walls of your home.
Falling Ice On Deck
Another frequent problem with Ice dams are when the ice builds up into large icicles on the second floor of your home. When the weather heats up and they start to fall, serious damage can ensue.
