If you’ve searched roofers near me because you have an ice dam, don’t call just any of the search results that you find. As a GAF Master Elite Certified roofing company in Nashville, TN with another office in Knoxville, we understand ice damming. It’s rarely seen in this area. That’s why so many of the local roofers don’t know the cause or how to prevent them in the future.
Why We’re Seeing Ice Dams
The sleet that blanketed most of the area may have run down into your gutters. It didn’t necessarily go down the downspouts. After several inches of sleet, some business and homeowners had snow or freezing rain. Then we had brief periods where the temperature, combined with the sun, lead to some melting. On top of that, we then had more sleet, freezing rain and snow. This, along with the heat constantly running in our homes lead to the perfect situation to create ice dams.
Signs of an Ice Dam
Many visuals of ice dams show long icicles and snow and ice built up high on the roof along the gutter. However, it only takes a small amount of ice in the gutter to back up and cause a roof leak. Gutters full and snow, sleet and ice combined with water inside your home, is often a sign of roof damage, likely from an ice dam. Water leaking around your windows or under your floorboards and wet carpets are all signs of a roof leak. Water follows the path of least resistance so it can show up anywhere.
Will My Insurance Cover My Repair?
That depends. In our experience as a roofing company in Nashville, some policies won’t cover the roof repair or gutter repair, but will cover the water damage inside the home. Other policies look at the issues as stemming from mother nature and therefor covers the entire claim. You can be assured that Mobley Brothers Roofing & Renovation accepts all insurance claims and will provide you adjustor with whatever information they need.
