How do you deal with Ice Dams?
I’ve spent the past week shoveling roofs and breaking up ice dams in preparation for some heavy rain. Without a hot water or steam pressure washer, I’ve been breaking up ice dams the old-fashion way – with a sledge hammer (and a pick-axe on the 18 inchers).
Knowing full-well of the risk of damaging the shingles by smashing the ice dams, I’m wondering what methods other people are using to deal with ice dams? Chip? Chop? Smash? Melt? Sawzall? ??????
