Icicles form when snow and ice melt on your roof. As the water drips off the roof it freezes, forming an icicle. Icicles can quickly become a nuisance as they add unnecessary weight to your home’s gutter system, causing damage to the supports and hardware that hold them in place. Larger icicles can become dislodged and damage or injure any person or property underneath it. If you’re not careful, icicles can cause some serious damage to your home. If your home has an abundance of icicles it could be a sign of ice dam issues. Don’t worry this winter, call The WNY Company today at (716) 776-7663.
