Ice Damming

Here in Utah, winter happens. I'll bet that was a surprise :). It is important to remember to prepare your home for winter by installing heat tape which will prevent ice damming.  Ice damming is the snow and ice that builds up along the edges of the roof and if not taken care of, water can back up under your shingles and drip into your house.
