What Are Ice Dams? How Are They Different From Icicles?
Any changes made to the foundation of the home can have unseen effects on your homes integrity. this includes enlarging windows, putting in doors, etc.

And what about fire safety? if there is bedroom in the basement but no doors or windows to leave in an emergency that creates an unsafe living condition.
Insulation, Ventilation, Air Sealing Can Solve Icicles
Why pay for ice dam removal when you can pay the same amount of money to prevent it permanently. Ice dams were a major problem for homeowners in February 2021. Take a look at this photo of a home in Skokie Illinois. “An icicle is simply a measuring stick of heat loss” Tim Darling. Take a look at your neighborhood, if there are homes with no icicles they have air sealed and insulated properly. If you have any icicles at all, any, they are unacceptable, they may look beautiful on postcards, but they are indicators of heat escape from the living space. If you had to build a fire and were loosing heat you will have to add more logs to the fire. Same thing applies, you are cycling your furnace. Warming the underside of the roof sheathing and creating snow melt.
