Prevent Ice Dams And Water Damage
Once again cold and snowy winter conditions have taken Minneapolis, MN by storm. As these early cold temperatures set in, the possibility of Ice Dams goes up. An ice dam forms when there is snow coverage and non-uniform roof temperatures. A chimney that is in poor condition adds fuel to this scenario. It is wise to contact Experienced Chimney Professionals to perform any necessary chimney repair and restoration work before the problem worsens. Dupont Construction & Remodeling are both Licensed Contractors and Masonry Experts.
Anatomy Of An Ice Dam
Damaging Ice Dams are far too common during volatile Minnesota Winters. Freezing and Warming temperature cycles make ice dams that much more abundant. They can form when a roof has a large amount of snow coverage, heat loss through the upper roof areas and temperatures below 32 degrees on the lower surfaces.
Heat loss around the upper roof area causes melting that runs down the roof covering and pools when it reaches ice that remains on the cold eaves. These ice dams force the melting snow to form pools that can back up inside of the roof coverings, down the walls and through ceilings. Damages due to ice dams can be Very Costly.
Chimney Repair And Restoration
Chimneys that are in bad shape add to the heat loss and subsequent ice dams. Missing or damaged flashing along with cracked or otherwise damaged masonry allows heat loss when you use your fireplace. Repairing damaged chimneys and flashing helps to prevent unwanted heat loss and melting snow. Masonry experts can pinpoint the problem areas and repair them efficiently. Contact an experienced chimney professional for inspections and estimates on needed chimney repairs.
