Stop Ice & Snow Build Up With Spray Foam Insulation

Ice Dams

Canadian winters can be rough and deep freezing climates are extremely common during the winter months. The insulation of your home or residential property plays an important factor in keeping your home warm during these winter months, also your insulation option can help provide significant cost saving opportunities on your electricity bills over time.

You may notice several homes around your neighbourhood with long icicles hanging from the eaves drops. Unfortunately, these icicles are a result of a potentially alarming issue that might be emerging from the roof of these home.

These conditions are commonly seen when the attic of your residential property is not efficiently insulated. Air escapes through the cracks and gaps that are between the insulation attic floor and the ceiling of the home. When the home is heated, the heated air causes the snow on the homes roof to melt where it eventually reaches the freezing eavesdrop and freezes again. This results in a collection of ice and a mountain of snow.

We have seen a few noticeable issues with the accumulation of ice banks on the roof and in several instances, these issues are considered very serious.

  • Ice banks can collect over time and result in damage to the eavestrough
  • Water can pass through the roof and cause significant damage to the ceilings and walls of your home.
  • Build-up of mold and mildew
  • Shingles can get damaged
  • Icicles can fall and potentially cause injury or damage to property or vehicles.


In order to avoid the serious issues of ice bank build up and properly insulate the attic and efficiently seal interior walls of the attic is to insulate your home with spray foam insulation. There is significant advantages of using spray foam insulation over traditional options. When spray foam insulation is applied, the application expands in order to perfectly seal the attic.  When the attic is sealed, the heated air in the home stays in the home and does not leak out. This prevents the build-up of snow banks and icicles hanging from your roof.
