How Do Ice Dams Form?
Ice dams are most common in northern climates. They occur when heavy snow buildup melts during the day and then refreezes when temperatures drop overnight.
After several days of melting-freezing cycles, it’s common for the melted water and ice to work up under the shingles until water enters the attic and eventually does damage to the ceilings, wall and contents. In cases where the ice dam goes unnoticed for an extended period of time, it can do significant damage to the building and its contents.

What Causes Ice Dams To Form Here In Michigan?
Ice dams form from the escape of heat into the attic space caused by insouciant insulated. The cause of this is heat builds up and eventually melts the snow on the roof, which, as described above runs to the cold edge of the roof and forms an ice dam. Factors such as ventilation, insulation, solar orientation, tree coverage, home architecture, snow cover and weather conditions all interact to determine ice dam activity on every home. Because no two houses are the same here in Michigan, it is common to have neighboring homes on two ends of the ice dam spectrum; one may have major leaking, while the other is virtually unaffected.
How To Prevent Ice Dams
The most effective long term solution to preventing ice dams is to reduce or eliminate any sources of heat in the attic and ventilate the attic space of the roof. The underside of the roof deck must be close to the temperature of the exterior side of the roof. Ideally ventilation should be installed using a continuous soffit-and-ridge vent system with baffles at the lower side of the roof. Provide at least a 2-inch space between insulation and sheathing. By providing adequate ventilation as illustrated in this diagram, the temperature of the attic will be lowered thereby lowering the underside roof deck temperature.
