Based in Minneapolis since 1995, the Ice Dam Guys® know winters can be tricky in Minnesota. We get pummeled with tons of snow and freezing temperatures, such as the storm that pounded St. Cloud with a one-two punch in February 2022. That doozie delivered plowable levels of snow, freezing wind chills, and tons of ice not only in Stearns County but throughout the state. It also brought with it the perfect conditions for ice dams to form and judging by our phone lines, there are a lot out there. If you see something like what’s shown in the photo below, you need to call us!
If you have an ice dam that looks anything like that, you’re at risk for developing interior ceiling leaks, partial or fully collapsed ceilings, and exterior damage to your gutters.
You might be curious why an ice dam formed on your roof and not your neighbors, and to be candid, there are a lot of reasons ice dams can form. One natural reason is drastic swings in the outside temperature that essentially cause a flash thawing of snow on your roof that’s interrupted by the evening’s freezing temperatures. This allows melting water to collect at your roof’s eaves and gutters and then it just snowballs from there. That being said, there are also unnatural causes that have origins inside your home. Those common culprits are often poor attic ventilation, heat loss from the interior of the home into the attic, or a combination of both! No matter what caused your ice dam, the biggest concern now is to get it off your house!
Steam-Only Ice Dam Removal in Stearns County
As we mentioned above, we’ve been hunting ice dams since 1995 and after many seasons and thousands of customer homes, we’ve perfected the best approach for their removal. We only perform steam-only ice dam removal because it’s the most effective and safe option for your home. Remember why you called us – it’s because you were concerned about the well-being of your home with this monster camping out on your roof. That concern for your home is shared by us and steam-only ice dam removal is the only method we trust to be gentle enough yet effective on your expensive roof.
Many inexperienced and seasonal contractors try recommending the use of salt melts, ice picks, hot-water power washers, and more abrasive methods. If that’s what they pitch as a solution for your ice dam, run or be prepared to have residual damage from their efforts. We’ve seen everything from ripped apart sections of shingles, banged up gutters and downspouts, and corrosive ice melt all over siding and concrete from these methods.
Our approach, only using steam to remove your ice dams, is as gentle as a facial at your favorite medspa. OK, that might be an exaggeration because our steam is quite hot, but it’s a fair comparison for your home! Our technician will safely and cautiously shovel any snow that’s resting on the ice dam and then fire up Steamzilla™ to slice and dice the ice dam into small handheld pieces of ice. They’ll then collect all of those remnants, remove them from your roof, and ensure no other ice remains and that your gutters are free-flowing for future snowmelt. You can see how this looks in the photo below that shows one of our technicians giving an ice dam the business:
