Ice Dam Removal
The Twin Cities Top Ice Dam Removal Company
The summation of an effective ice dam removal company relies on 2 factors: the knowledge and experience dealing with removal of ice dams, and the utilization of the best tools for the job.
We have been removing ice dams for over 20 years. Besides being experts on the most efficient and safest way to remove ice dams without damaging your home, we are experts on the formation and causes of ice dams on roofs of all types.
The Ice Dam Company only uses steam for ice dam removal (roof ice and gutter ice removal). Any other approach is too risky because roofs are easily damaged in frigid temperatures. Ice dam removal using a hammer or other impact instruments can result in costly damage. Gutter ice removal or roof ice removal using a power washer can also do significant damage.
Removing Ice Dams With Steam
When The Ice Dam Company arrives at your home to remove your ice dam, it will be a small crew of ice dam removal experts operating a steamer, using techniques to remove your ice dam the most efficient and safe way possible.
It’s important to distinguish that many companies use high-temperature pressure washers instead of steamers, and some even call them ”steamers” although they are not steamers at all. The safest technique for removing ice on your roof, or performing gutter ice removal is using a true steamer.
The Cost of Ice Dam Removal
Ice Dam removal rates that companies charge often appear pricey at first. The cost of removing ice dams is largely reflective of the dangers involved, the laborous nature of the physical removal of heavy ice and the skill and knowledge utilized by the ice dammer to evade issues inherent. Our hourly rate adjusts when it is required for our ice technicians to work longer hours to meet the demand.
Typically-sized ice dams can be removed safely at a rate of about 1-hour per liner-10-feet, and generally most ice dam removal jobs are 1-3 hours including set up, take down and clean up. 50-100lb chunks of ice removed from roofs are not left in walking paths or driveways.
The reality of ice dam removal costs are: spending a a bit to remove a dam from your home can save you thousands in damages that an ice dam can cause.
