Background Information on Ice Dams
An ice dam forms when there is snow on the roof, the roof temperature is above zero (as a result of poor insulation, sunlight hitting a dark roof, etc...) and the temperature of the overhang and gutters is below freezing. The water (melted snow) turns to ice when it runs down to the cold part of the roof. As it freezes, it forms an ice dam (see picture at right). As more water backs up and turns to ice, it can back up under shingles and cause roof damage as well as leak through walls and ceilings, causing interior damage to your home.
What is an Ice Dam Sleeve ?
It is the low-cost, simple solution to prevent damage caused by ice dams.
The Ice Dam Sleeve is a sleeve filled with deicer material that is long-lasting and won't damage the roof or its components (including roofing nails, shingles, gutters and down spouts). In addition, the run-off will not damage turf, shrubs, flower beds, or concrete at the bottom of the down spout.
The key is to melt an outlet through an ice dam, by placing the Ice Dam Sleeve in strategic locations, to allow the water to run through the outlet and into the gutters and downspouts that will open because of the deicing material. Ice Dam Sleeve should be placed on the roof, one to two feet above the gutter, at the farthest point away from the downspout (in order to keep the gutter clear), and approximately every 20 feet. It is a good idea to place an Ice Dam Sleeve in valleys where a lot of water runs to the gutters. Gutters and downspouts should be clear of leaves and debris in order to allow for the ice dam blaster to work properly.
Under "typical" winter conditions the sleeves should be placed on the roof after the late Fall rainy season is over and as early during the Winter season as possible to prevent ice dam water back-up. The Ice Dam Sleeve should last for the entire winter season, however it may need to be replaced if enough moisture occurs to empty the sleeve. When the sleeve is empty it will usually blow to the ground, so you may not need to climb up to get it.
Ice Dams on your roof can cause major costly damage to your roof and the walls inside
