    Don’t have time to watch the whole video? Here are some of the highlights:

    Interviewer: Explain what [ice dams are], how they form, and how you help.

    Courtney: Icicles hanging from your roof—they might look pretty, but there’s actually nothing good about them. Aside from being dangerous, the buildup of ice and melted snow along the roof’s edge can cause big damage to your roof, to insulation, to walls, and your ceiling of your home… This usually isn’t something that you easily see until it’s actually too late, which is why you want to do things to prevent it from happening.

    Interviewer: So explain what we would do.

    Courtney: What I would suggest is having us come out and you want to do that energy assessment at no cost. We use thermal imaging cameras and we actually get up into your attic to see how much insulation you have and how much more you may need and that’s one of the main things.

    Another thing that we help with when we do the insulation is also looking into your ventilation. Making sure that your kitchen and bathroom vents are properly vented, just so that the cold air can circulate from the bottom to the top, again so that the roof is not getting too warm.
