WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PAINT DAMAGE FROM ICE DAMS
Ice dams form when melting snow (caused by warm air that escapes into your attic) refreezes on the edge of the roof where it’s colder, resulting in roof damage. As water continues to melt, water leaks from the roof into the attic as well as the wall cavity of your home. This can cause moisture and associated paint problems on both the interior and exterior of your home.
Moisture problems from ice dams can cause:
- Peeling paint
- Siding and soffit damage
- Mold or mildew
- Water damage/water stains
To successfully repair any paint damage, you’ll first want to have the moisture and insulation problem resolved. The next step is proper surface preparation, followed by the proper application of the appropriate primer and paint. If not done correctly, the issue can recur even if the moisture issue has been resolved.
