Gutter with icicles This is a ice dam that caused a water leak to the finished basement.

What is an Ice Dam? Ice dams are common this time of year. Ice dams form when snow melts on your roof until it meets the unheated bottom edge of the roof and then freezes. Any additional melted snow or water will not properly drain off of the roof and can cause many issues to your home. 

Ice damming can cause water leak(s) into your home, potentially causing damages to your walls, ceilings, insulation and other areas. Recently, we had a house with a water leak in their finished basement due to ice dams. Our team responded quickly and dried the basement by setting up an Velo Pro air mover to help remove moisture from the air. 

Our team can help mitigate water damage caused by ice dams, as well as get your structure back to preloss condition. SERVPRO of Carbon County and Pocono Pines can help you with your ice dams.
