Ice Dam Removal Videos (also on YouTube)

One upshot of being in high demand is we get many opportunities to share know-how and have our mugs featured on TV.  Though occasionally Ice Dam Guys® shoots ice dam removal videos of our own, most of our videos are taken by news stations, capturing us in action. Over the years, The Weather Channel also has rolled plenty of footage during interviews of us (see links below).

In additiona to our TV appearances, we also take on-the-job videos from time to time.

You can always check out (and maybe subscribe to) Ice Dam Guys®’ YouTube channel, which is all about ice dam removal. But with as many videos as we’ve got there – and all the videos we add every year – it can be hard to know where to start.  A complete list is at the bottom of this page, but here are just a few videos on ice dam removal:
