MADISON- Experts are warning home owners to
look out for damage from ice dams.  The
rooftop dams build up after heat melts snow that re-freezes near the edge of
the house.



 



Water damage from melting ice can cost
thousands of dollars in repairs.  Local
construction companies say preventing damage now can save money later.



 



“Work from the ground, I mean, to try
and alleviate by snow rake and rake off the edges of the roof, but also make
sure any snow above where you raked gets addressed too,” said Mark Ganser, Ganser
Exterior & Remodeling:.



           



Ice rakes cost around $40 dollars at
most hardware stores and are easy to use. But, Ganser said you should stay safe
and leave the roof work to the professionals.
