What is an Ice Dam?

An ice dam is the formation of ice at the edge of the roof, usually at the gutters or soffit.  When it forms the water then backs up behind the ice dam and creates a pool of water. The pool of water can leak into your home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas, usually spotted first by stains on the ceiling at the top of walls on the other walls of the house.
