Ice Dam Prevention Solutions
We Stop Ice Dams Before They Start!
Heavy ice dams at the edge of roofs can destroy eave lines, causing serious structural damage. Ice dams need to be removed properly to avoid damage to the roof. It generally takes 3-4 weeks of snow and ice buildup for ice dams to occur. Chipping away at the ice dams can cause serious damage to the roof.
Removing heavy snows and ice dams from your roof is one of the winter services that Mills Roofing Inc. provides. We use a high-pressure steamer, which does not damage the roof. The steamer puts out steam up to 300°, gently, yet powerfully, melting away the damaging ice. We can provide a one-time service or an annual service.
Ice dams are one of the main causes of roof damage and leak problems in the Truckee, Tahoe and Incline area.
With 30 years of experience, Mills Roofing has seen many roofs damaged by ice dams and snow load. We know what works best in this area.
Removing heavy snows from your roof is essential for proper function of roof products. Many people think that their roof was built to hold 20 feet of snow and while this may be true of the structure, the exterior products are not rated for that job and can fail, causing severe damage to the interior of your home. Contact Mills Roofing Inc. for more information about snow removal and how often you might need this service.

Metal Roof Skirts
Metal skirts at the edge of the roof offer a great solution to the constant damage caused by ice dam build up. Proper installation between the transition of the metal skirt and the composition roof is the key to ice dam prevention. Mills Roofing Inc has installed metal roof skirting on many homes and businesses over the past 30 years.
Our professional roofing installers can install skirting to your existing composite roofing or as part of your complete roof replacement to prevent future roof leaks due to ice damming.
