Spring thaw in February causing your roof to leak?

Warmer daytime temperatures, freezing nights and a few more snow events spell trouble for potentially leaking roofs.

Ice dams are not obvious threats. They become obvious after the damage has been done. Snow on the roof, heat rising in the attic, and Mother Nature’s warm sunshine produce melt that are all a recipe for possible ice dams.

How an ice dam forms:

Melting snow runs towards the edge and eaves of the roof, and then they refreeze and melt again in the days following a snow storm.  This cycle cause the ice to form and “back up” the gutter system preventing the flow of water. The water pushes behind and under the shingles and eaves resulting in interior damage to ceilings, walls and windows.

Roof and gutter deicing cables along with automatic moisture sensors are the best solution to this problem.

De-icing cables offer the most direct and effective protection. Fastened into position over the eaves (and often within the gutters as well), these cables output heat to prevent melted snow from refreezing before it has the chance to run off the roof, into the gutter or drainage system, and finally into the yard.

Conditions are ideal to have the professionals at Lucci Electric review your roof and gutter deicing needs.
