Q: What causes ice dams on my gutters?
A: An ice dam is a buildup of ice and water that works its way under shingles. When snow or ice on the roof melts (caused by warm spots in the attic or the sun), water slowly runs down the roof. When the water hits a cold spot on the roof (usually at the eaves), the water refreezes. As more melting water hits the cold spot, it begins to “stack up”, freeze, eventually working its way underneath shingles and sheathing.
