Ice Dam and Snow Removal- Newington, CT


Ice Dam in Newington, CT

We have had some wild winter weather in Connecticut this year, and it doesn't look as though it will be ending just yet. Your roof and home is taking a beating under the weight of the ice and snow. But nothing is more damaging to your home than ice dams.

Ice dams form when melting snow from improperly insulated and vented attics and sunlight melt snow. The water from that melting snow will refreeze at the eave or in your gutters, thus creating a dam. Most roofing materials are not made to hold water resulting in it taking the path of least resistance, which is under the shingles and into your home! The damage this could create is extensive and expensive! Removing the snow and ice is the best prevention for ice dam and water damage. 

We are a full service restoration and roofing company. If you need an estimate for your homeowner's insurance claim for repairs from ice and water damage, mitigation for further damages (dry-outs, mold and mildew prevention), restoration or repairs, or simply just want to remove the ice and snow to prevent damages, call today and speak to our experienced contractor.

Snow and Ice Dam Removal - Glastonbury, CT


Here in Connecticut we are no stranger to extreme weather! Despite it's beauty, snow and ice can reek havoc on your home. Those lovely icicles are indication of some potentially major damage and costly repairs to come. I'm talking about "ice dams".
Ice dams form when snow melts from an improperly insulated and vented attic. The water runs down along the shingles and once it hits the eaves and overhangs where it is cold, it refreezes and creates a "dam", allowing for water to take the path of least resistance, through your walls and ceilings! Once you realize what it happening, usually by water stains on your walls, ceilings and window frames, the damage is extensive. These may include:

  • Saturated drywall
  • Saturated insulation (rendering it useless)
  • Warped wood
  • Damaged gutters
  • Damaged siding (depending on how your gutters are installed)
  • Warped wood around windows
  • Water stains
  • Roof sheathing rotting 
  • Dangerous mold and mildew growing in wall cavities and attic

You can prevent this damage by removing the snow and ice. This is a dangerous job, and we can help!
Call (860) 942-3555 for snow and ice removal. We specialize in insurance restoration, dry outs, mold removal, and billing to your home owner's insurance company.
