I just noticed that I have a pretty large ice dam forming on my roof (will post pictures later).
I am just wondering, is there anything I can do to remove the ice? It has completely filled the eavestrough on one section of the house.
I have not seen any noticeable warm spots on the roof (i.e. melting regions). We have been having warm, cold, warm, cold weather, followed by snow; which I am sure doesn't help anything.
I understand that to prevent it from happening in the future, would be to better insulate the attic (I also have wooden soffits, which likely doesn't help anything). Next year, I will invest in a roof snow shovel. I think the main culprit has been the stupid weather (melt, freeze, melt, freeze).
Should I just let the ice dam resolve, or should I do something to remove the ice?
