Protect Your Home From Ice Dams This Winter

Gutter Helmet's Heated Helmet melts away ice, reducing your risk of developing ice dams

WOONSOCKET, RHODE ISLAND – 12/01/2010 – Moonworks, a home improvement company based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, wants to educate homeowners on how to protect their homes from ice dams this winter.

Many homeowners do not know what an ice dam is until it’s too late.  Educate yourself on ice dams now so you can recognize potential problems before they result in severe water damage to your home.  Moonworks has a very informative home improvement blog post that not only explains what an ice dam is, but it goes into detail about how they form and what you can do to minimize your home’s risk.

Although there is no way to completely eliminate your home’s risk of having an ice dam, awareness of what they are and how they are formed will allow you to better protect your home.  The graphic contained in the ice dam blog perfectly illustrates an ice dam and the damage they can cause to your home.

Moonworks’ Heated Helmet can help minimize the risk of ice dams.  Heated Helmet is a self regulating heating coil within the Gutter Helmet gutter protection system.  The coil heats up only when needed to melt away ice and snow into your gutters and downspouts and away from your home’s foundation.  This minimizes the risk of an ice dam forming on your roof due to excess water.
