Ice Dam Prevention Tips
Ice dams form on your roof due to insufficient air sealing and attic ventilation.
Guaranteeing ice dam removal in Minnesota is not possible, but research has shown positive in updating the issues below.
Attic Air Sealing – Sealing all bypass, recessed lights and fans with proper expanding foam is the most important factor in mitigating ice dams.
Attic Insulation – Insulating your attic is key for Minnesota homes. Recommend R-value in attics is R50 to R60, which results in 18-24 inches of fiberglass or cellulose insulation.
Attic Ventilation – Installing ventilation keeps your attic from over heating and causing ice dams to develop. Adding a roof vent or gable vent can go a long way to mitigate ice dam build up. If you’re interested in preventing ice dams from occurring, learn more about our Minnesota Attic Insulation services.
