That heat escapes into your attic, through your roof and melts the snow, This causes the formation of ice on your roof. Ice can build in your gutters, on your eaves and in your valleys, even under chimneys and vent pipes. This formation of roof ice than becomes an ice dam. Ice dams steadily grow as the cold winter drags on. Ice on your roof can lead to water leaking into your house through your roof, walls, around doors and windows. The weight of all that ice and snow can also cause damage to the outside of your home. Damaging gutters, siding and roofing materials.
