Icicles are pretty but can mean water damage to Shady Side Homes
Icicles look so pretty!!Shady Side and Deale residents should be weary of those pretty winter creations. They can be a sign that your roof has an ice dam. Ice Dams occur when a snow-covered roof has some melting that seeps under the snow drift and then refreezes at the edge of the roof line. Once frozen any further water that is melting has nowhere to go other than under shingles or into holes in a roof line.
If you see icicles on the roof line you should check your attic for any possible wet spots which would indicate a problem. Catching these early is key to avoiding a larger water damage in your Deale or Shady Side home.
SERVPRO of Edgewater/Deale-Churchton/Lothian has a team of technicians that can assist should your water damage become more than you can handle.
