An ice dam emergency can’t wait. If you have an emergency, you need a professional out there the same day or the very next day. Depending on how inclement the weather is will determine how booked a good ice dam company is. But a good ice dam company will be staffed and prepared for such events offering same-day or next-day service.
Keep in mind the cost to offer fast service that’s also safe and effective, you are going to be paying for it. However, it’s a temporary price to pay to make sure your home doesn’t pay the price.
Do they use only safe and effective steam to remove ice dams?
There is only one proper and safe way to remove an ice dam from your roof and that is with an ice dam steamer. Any company using just pure hot water that is, from a high-pressure washer, run don’t walk from them. There’s a strong possibility that most of that water will end up in your house, and an even stronger to most likely chance that they are destroying your roof shingles.
A good ice dam company will use a custom-built ice dam steamer. Not something you can rent or find to buy off the shelf. Why? Because gentle hot steam is less likely to cause additional leakage into your home, and, in the hands of a professional, it won’t damage your roof.
Don’t compromise on this point, hire a fully insured professional with an ice dam steamer. It’s hot and powerful enough to break up and send ice dams on their way but won’t damage or soak your shingles.
