Ice Dams in Somerville, MA Because of the recent harsh winters, many residents of Somerville are familiar with the water damage caused by Ice Dams, but perhaps not the processes that create them. When the heat in a home moves into the attic it heats up the roof and causes the snow on the roof to melt. That water flows down into the eaves, freezes and forms a dam. As the melting and freezing repeat, those ice dams continue to get larger. Eventually the water will make its way through the roof shingles and then down into the attics, walls and ceilings below. When this happens, mold begins to form and might impact your air quality. Water damage from ice dams in Somerville is usually covered by property insurance.
