With winter just around the corner, many homeowners in northern states and Canada are susceptible to ice dams and icicles. Icynene's newest infographic shows how ice dams can form and how investing in an insulation and air barrier material like Icynene can help reduce the risk of them forming and causing potential damage to your roof.
Ice dams appear when snow on the roof begins to melt, turned to water by warm air escaping from the attic or roof space. This melted water tends to reform as ice and icicles, this time under the shingles or within gutters, which can create all sorts of potential problems for homeowners.
