ice dams suck
Big time. Now have heaters along the roof edge and gutters to stave of recurrence.
Do these things help? I have heard mixed reviews.
For this winter, we finally had to hire some folks to ax off the ice. On one corner of our house there was a 2.5 foot build up of ice (too high for us to rake off the snow). The expense equivalent of a bottle of Screaming Eagle with 3 guys and 6 hours later we can now see our roof. Definitely in planning mode for how to avoid this next year
