Ice dams can form only when all three of the following conditions are true:

  • Air temperatures are well below freezing
  • There is a thick layer of dry snow on the roof, which insulates the roof from the warmth from above
  • Heat from the attic/upper crawl space comes up through the roof

Our Mundelein/North Wauconda professionals suggest that when the weather becomes warm again, you check for sufficient insulation. Good insulation protects not just the rest of the home, but it prevents excess heat from melting the ice under the insulating snow. At the same time, your roof needs to have sufficient ventilation that allows the heat to escape from under the eaves.
