As winter’s cold weather approaches again, you may be remembering back to those frightening buildups of ice on your roof that you’ve had to contend with in years past. Known as ice dams, they can present a lot of potential problems for your roofing, attic, insulation and other parts of your home.

The time to deal with an ice dam is before it occurs, not after. So you might want to consider taking some steps to prevent their occurrence before winter really tightens its grip on your home.
