Call us at 1-800-423-3267 if you have an ice dam on your roof and want it removed safely. We are properly licensed, bonded, and insured. You can end the leaks with a phone call.
We’re based in Minnesota and provide safe, steam-only ice dam removal in 36 states, and have removed ice dams in most of those states. We also serve southern Canada.
Though we’re best-known for saving homes and businesses, we’re also the only Federally Registered contractors in the ice dam removal space, and therefore the only ice dam removal company approved to remove ice dams on US Government buildings. (By the way, we also thaw pipes, drains, spigots, vents and vent pipes, and more.)
Wherever in North America it snows enough that you might get an ice dam on your roof, you can get a competent, experienced, and friendly Ice Dam Guys® tech to remove the ice dam safely with steam.

Arguably the ice dam capital of the USA, Minnesota is our home. We wouldn’t be in this business if we didn’t grow up in and live in a place with heavy-duty winters, where ice dams are a recurring problem in need of a safe solution. Our HQ is in the Twin Cities, and most of us live in or very near Minneapolis & St. Paul. Most of our Ice Dam Guys® techs – including our owner, Joe Palumbo – are native Minnesotans. We’ve removed ice dams around here for over 20 years, including up north, in places like St. Cloud, Brainerd Lakes, Hinckley, Grand Rapids, and Duluth. We were the premier Twin Cities ice dam removal company before we became the most-trusted ice dam company across the rest of the US. Though we help homeowners wherever ice dams are a problem, we always have an Ice Dam Guys® crew a call away here in the Land of 10,000 Snow Storms. We’re the top-rated ice dam removal company in the US (just Google us), but we just happen to be right near you.
We love the short trip across the river to help Wisconsin homeowners with ice dams. Pretty much every winter we’ve got ice dams in Minnesota, you’ve got them in Wisconsin, which means we send over guys frequently. Two of our best Ice Dam Guys® techs, Chad and Mark, are Wisconsinites. Many of our jobs have been in the Madison area, but we serve the entire state, including the greater Milwaukee, Eau Claire, Green Bay, Marinette, Hayward, Ashland, Spooner, and Wausau regions.
We’ve gotten calls from Bismarck, Fargo, and other parts of North Dakota just up I-94 from us.
Of course, we serve our neighbors to the west. The eastern part of South Dakota (like around Sioux Falls) is close enough that we can usually offer our signature same-day service without having to send the “away team” to stay at a local hotel. However, we have visited Rapid City on occasion, so who knows where we’ll be this year!
In some winters Illinois sees Minnesota-grade snow and cold. But, as the 5th-biggest state in the US, Illinois has more than its share of out-of-work contractors who need work in the winter, see the ice dams, and see dollar signs. That’s particularly true in the Chicago area. When we see an ice dam, we see a thousand details we need to get right to remove it safely and efficiently. We’re proud to serve safety-conscious homeowners in the land of Honest Abe Lincoln.
Ice dams aren’t a big concern in all of Ohio, but the Cleveland, Akron, and Toledo areas get some heavy snow due to their proximity to Lake Erie. Ice dams aren’t a frequent enough problem that the Buckeye State has a company of ice dam removal specialists (that we know of), which is why we get calls from Ohio and proudly serve Ohio. In the winter of 2018, we removed many ice dams in Northeast Ohio, from Cleveland to Akron to Ashtabula, and likewise so far in the winter of 2022.
Not far from our Minneapolis HQ, Iowans from Sioux Falls to Des Moines to Cedar Rapids call Ice Dam Guys® for help when the winter is even rougher than usual.
We serve both sides of the Mackinac Bridge, from Marquette and Menominee to Detroit, plus Traverse City and Grand Rapids to Lansing.
Known more for fertile soil than for big ugly ice dams, Indiana sees its share of snow. That’s especially true if you’re in the northern part of the Hoosier state, in South Bend, or Gary, or in another community close to Lake Michigan.
Nebraska winters are some of the harshest we’ve seen (especially given the winds). You can always call in the cavalry. We serve Nebraskans in Omaha and Lincoln, as well as in the western end of the Cornhusker state.
The heart of the Heartland, Kansas can get a bit of Midwestern cold and Rockies cold – and sometimes the snow and ice dams that come with it.
Based just a few hundred miles up the Missouri from you, Ice Dam Guys® has the kind of customer reviews that you, a Show Me State homeowner, would demand to see.

The only place where we’ve removed more ice dams is our native Minnesota. We removed hundreds of ice dams in Massachusetts in the record-breaking winter of 2015 and sent Ice Dam Guys® technicians back in February 2017 and January 2018. Most of our jobs have been in greater Boston, particularly in Metrowest, but we get constant calls throughout eastern Mass and sometimes in the Fitchburg or Worcester areas and farther west. Although we don’t care much for the drivers in Mass, we admire how Bay Staters care for their homes, and we always appreciate their warmth and hospitality.
The grand old homes in Connecticut attract equally impressive ice dams. We’ve been to New England twice (2015 and 2017), and both times removed ice dams in Connecticut – particularly around Hartford and in the eastern part of the state.
Vacationland is so nice that ice dams visit, too. As the only state on the East Coast as far north as our native Twin Cities, Maine gets heavy-duty snow, but it usually doesn’t cause serious problems. When it does, you can rest easy knowing that we’re probably in New England already and that we’ve removed ice dams in Maine before (in the winter of 2017) in Portland and Augusta.
Most people think of the ocean when they think of the Ocean State. We think of the big, leaky, New England ice dams we removed in RI in 2015 and 2017. Most of our jobs have been in the eastern half of the state, from Woonsocket to Providence to Coventry. But, as Midwesterners, we don’t find it too daunting to drive across Rhode Island, so we serve the entire state.
It’s difficult to Live Free when you’re worried about an ice dam causing leaks and forcing you to fork over for expensive home repairs. When we’ve been to New Hampshire in the past, most of our calls have been in the southern part of the state (Manchester to Nahshua to Keene), but we serve homeowners right up to the Quebec border.
Homeowners in the Green Mountain State are used to snow, but your roof might not hold up as well. We’ve removed ice dams in Vermont on the occasions we’ve come to New England. Two of our finest ice dam removal experts, Shawn and Ryan, are native Vermonters.
Upstate New York (especially Syracuse, Buffalo, and Rochester) is legendary for heavy snowfall, but greater NYC and Long Island occasionally have ice dam problems, too. Ice Dam Guys® serves the entire Empire State.
As the most densely-populated state in the US, New Jersey has no shortage of roofs, many of them on great old homes. In an unusually heavy winter, that means the Garden State can become an ice dam crisis zone in short time. If this winter is that winter, we can help.
Few states have both East Coast and Midwestern-type winters. Pennsylvania is one of them. We sent a crew to Erie in the record-breaking winter of 2017-2018, where we helped hundreds of homeowners. Whether you’re near Erie, Pittsburgh, the Poconos, or Philly, Ice Dam Guys® can handle whatever Mother Nature has thrown at your home.
By the way, we’re hiring ice dam techs from Pennsylvania (we’ll train you).
Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia
At the southern edge of “ice dam country,” the DC area usually doesn’t have an ice dam problem. Usually. The exceptions are notable, like Winter Storm Jonas (at the beginning of 2016), when we removed ice dams and snow in DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
The First State’s maritime climate means unpredictable, sometimes very damaging winters. You probably don’t have an ice dam on the roof of your Delaware home every winter, but if you do, Ice Dam Guys® has you covered.

2017 started off with a bang in Idaho. Storm after storm made roads and roofs dangerous. Though known for harsh weather, Idaho doesn’t usually get as much snow as Minnesota, so there was (and still is) a lack of professional and experienced ice dam removal specialists in Idaho. We sent Ice Dam Guys® techs and kept them there for about 6 weeks, helping homeowners from Boise, Pocatello, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, and throughout Idaho.
Oregon’s winter of 2017 surprised us, and it surprised many Oregonians. We removed hundreds of ice dams in the Bend area over the course of about 3 weeks, and got many calls from the Portland area as well.
Two of our finest Ice Dam Guys® techs are from Wyoming, and they told us the snowfall and ice dams could be downright Biblical. We didn’t appreciate that fully until we sent a crew to Wyoming in the winter of 2017 and saw for ourselves. The Jackson area in particular had some of the heaviest ice dams we’ve seen. Even when most of the rest of the USA saw a record-breaking heatwave, we were still steaming ice dams in Wyoming. We’ve also removed ice dams in the Casper, Lander, Cheyenne, and Laramie areas.
Big Sky, big state, big homes, big ice dams. We’ve removed ice dams in (or gotten calls from) Billings, Helena, Missoula, Kalispell and Whitefish, Bozeman, Butte, and Great Falls.
By the way, we’re hiring more ice dam techs from Montana (we’ll train you).
We’ve removed many an ice dam in the Salt Lake City area, especially in Park City, Ogden, West Jordan, West Valley City, Heber City, Morgan, Midway, Draper, Eden, Huntsville, and the greater Provo-Orem area. We went to Utah for the first time in January-February of 2017, and have removed ice dams in Utah every winter since then. Given how Utahans care about protecting the family home, we know we’ll be back next time ice dams even start to become a hazard.
Most people who’ve never been to Washington just think “lots of rain,” but we’ve removed some heavy-duty ice dams in Washington, particularly in the eastern half of the state, around Spokane.
February of 2023 brought many feet of snow to the Tahoe area (and even flurries in SoCal!). At the beginning of 2017, the 5-plus-year drought in California ended with 10+ feet of snow in some parts of the Sierra Nevadas, particularly around Lake Tahoe. We’ve removed ice dams in mountain towns in the high Sierras, most often in Truckee and South Lake Tahoe. The ice dams are equaled only by the scenery.
We serve pretty much any snowy part of the Silver State, north of Sin City – particularly the Nevada half of Lake Tahoe. We’ve removed ice dams in Carson City, Reno, Stateline, the Washoe Valley, and other communities in northwestern Nevada.
Flagstaff and other mountain towns in the north of the state are plenty cold, but only occasionally do they get enough precipitation to result in heavy snowfall (and ice dams). Now may be one of those occasions. Some of our technicians live in the vicinity and can help.
Coloradans and their homes are so used to heavy snow that it might take a downright Biblical winter for you to need ice dam removal. We get many calls from Colorado, particularly from the Denver area, Colorado Springs, Ft. Collins, Vail and surrounding mountain communities.
How could we not serve the biggest, northernmost, and snowiest state in America? (Our owner, Joe Palumbo, loves to hunt game in Alaska, and has seen the snow.)
As one who lives in the Birthplace of Lincoln, you’re probably looking for an honest company that specializes in safe ice dam removal. Just Google our name and you’ll know your search has ended – with the end of the ice dam on your roof soon to follow.
With some of the most rugged geography this side of Minnesota, the Mountain State has harsh winters and – once in a blue moon – serious ice dams.
What Customers Across the US Say
“I have used Ice Dam Guys in both Minneapolis and also in the Boston area. Once you have leaking from an Ice Dam into your house, you need to get the issue addressed quickly. Ice Dam Guys are incredibly responsive, will answer or return your call within hours and get someone there the same or next day. Eli worked on our house for a number of hours this winter, kept us informed of his progress throughout, and the issue was taken care of. If you need to deal with this issue, I highly recommend this company.” – Laura Eisen (read review on Google Maps)
“The Ice Dam Guys® team is extremely professional and very communicative. This past winter was extremely bad in Connecticut and every company I called was unable to get to our home soon enough. Even though these guys are based in Minneapolis, they were able to get a team out here before the local ice dam removal companies—just goes to show that they fully understand how urgent ice dam removal is. The whole removal process itself was done without a hiccup and in the amount of time they estimated, which was a relief.” – Luv Bajaj, Wilton CT (read more on Google)
“I live in the Chicago metro area. I have gutter guards on my home, which cause ice dams—which I didn’t know about when I had them installed. I called them and they were very quick to respond. The tech who showed was Larry. He was great. He worked non-stop, literally. It was a long day for him in frigid temperatures, but he kept at it. Plus, he had his ladder and other equipment stolen from his truck earlier in the day, which could easily have excused him from even starting my job, let alone finishing it, hours later. He was Iron Man. I highly recommend these guys. Ask if you can get Larry. He’s the best.” – Douglas Matton (read review on Google Maps)
“We have a vacation home in the Sierras and while visiting this winter we noticed the kitchen ceiling starting leaking late one night! I did some homework on various companies that I could call in the morning, and narrowed it down to two companies that seemed to be the most knowledgeable. I didn’t get a good feeling after speaking to the first company, so I called the Ice Dam Guys. They say they’re national and low and behold they were available! Wow, am I glad I did! I spoke with Jason (or maybe it was Jay), and he was incredibly kind & knowledgeable. In less than a few minutes on the phone with him I knew I had the right company. I decided to book an appointment, and he had someone available this afternoon. Jake showed up right on time, and even called to let me know he was on his way. He was quick to get to work and seemed to know exactly how to stop my leak. I immediately knew I was in good hands. What a relief! It took him a while to remove the snow and ice within my problem spot (and it wasn’t cheap!), but the leaking stopped. Thank god! I can’t say enough great things about this company and the people they employ. True professionals. Thank you Jake and Jay (or Jason) for saving the day. I will refer you to anyone that needs your service, although I hope they don’t need it. If you live in an area that gets snow like this, you need to have an ice dam removal company on speed-dial!” – Dixie Jones (read more on Google)
“I live in Bend, Oregon…we had a huge amount of snow and ice this winter, I came home to my two cats watching water drip from a door jam in an interior wall. I was pretty alarmed to say the least. So I stuck a bucket under the drip and called the Ice Dam Guys, it was 8 p.m., I was immediately connected to Gary, after patient and lengthy explanation, scheduled a time the following day for ice dam removal. Promptly at 11 a.m. Kyle arrived and spent the next two hours removing ice and snow off my roof. Kyle was wonderful, polite and kind, he explained the process again, jumped up on the roof and took care of the issue. This is a first class operation, everything was explained to me before work began. I was never left wondering at any point when Kyle would arrive or what work would be covered. These guys are the real deal. Thanks for reading my review. I sure appreciated the reviewers that night I was panicking about the drips. Thanks again Gary and Kyle!” – Cynthia Mayfield (read review on Google Maps)
“In the middle of Boise‘s 100-year snow event, we were one of hundreds of homeowners with water from an ice dam coming into our house at an alarming rate. I called the Ice Dam Guys, thinking that I wouldn’t get a call back for days. I left a message at 11 am, Jay called me back in an hour, Adam was on my roof by 4 pm THE SAME DAY. Adam was polite, professional, and very knowledgeable about ice dams and roofs/gutters in general. By 6 pm my ice dam was gone, and the water stopped coming into my house, which prevented additional costly damage. The price was very reasonable. The peace of mind was priceless. I hope that we never have another winter like this, but if we do, I would call the Ice Dam Guys again in a heartbeat.” – Jodi R (see review on Google Maps)
