Roof Ice Dams During the Winter, Especially Dangerous with Spring Thaws

Minnesota, the Gopher state, gets the same winter weather conditions as our neighboring states, all affecting our roofs. Frozen gutters and large icicles are extremely dangerous. The masses of snow and ice lying and then falling from the roofs of buildings can be dangerous, especially during spring thaws. Snow falling quickly and violently from the roof, especially when it is packed and frozen, can post a serious threat to the health of household members or people passing by. The ice and snow can cover and also damage the gutters and other roof elements, as well as cause interior leaking.
