L&S Home Improvements knows that treacherous Michigan winters bring an increased threat of ice dams on your roof. Poor insulation is the leading cause of ice dam formation. Ice dams form when heat escapes into the attic which causes the snow on your roof to melt. The water then runs down and begins to accumulate on the bottom of your roof where it forms large blocks as it freezes. These 'dams' trap water underneath them, causing excess strain. By having proper insulation and air sealing, you can prevent ice dam formation.
We remove ice dams from your roof using the only safe method: hot steam. We use the hot steam to gently remove the damaging snow and ice without causing damage to the underlying structure. If left untreated, ice dams can wreak havoc on your home, resulting in costly repairs.
