TEMPERATURE Lets face it, in our extreme climate of Minnesota, and with the ABOVE 32 DEGREES recent heavy snowfall, most homes experience ike dams. Regardless if a roof is 30 years old or if it's brand new: Ice Dams are simply a result of normal heat loss from your home that is melting snow on the upper sections of your roof. As the water is shedding down the roof, it meets the eaves (lowest section of the roof that is outside the building envelope) and freezes.
