Ice Dam Damage to Home This photo shows how an ice dam can cause damage to your home.

Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes! According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, there are 11,842 lakes that are 10 acres of more in size. Incredible! Many say Minnesota is God's country and I tend to agree!

In Minnesota we miss out on hurricanes and wild forest fires, but we definitely have some crazy weather. During this time in the year, almost halfway through winter, the temperature may dip down to 15 or 20 degrees below zero with a windchill of 35 degrees below zero. We may have a few weeks like that and then it may warm up in February to a few degrees above freezing. 

What does this do to homes? Many times when we have this bitterly cold weather and then warming, it can create havoc on your home. 

SERVPRO of Rochester has seen customers with ice dams which creates issues with the roof and attic. This can create some serious damage to the inside of your home too including the insulation, studs, sheetrock & walls. 

We are ready to help you during this time if you find you have an ice dam. Call SERVPRO of Rochester. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
