Although Maryland is one of the smallest US states it is also one of the most densely populated. Snow fall varies greatly from the coastal regions to the mountainous areas from 9-100 inches per season. Winters are generally mild in most of the state but areas can receive extended cold spells. The combination of extended cold and the potential hundred inches of snow per season make Maryland very prone to ice dams on roofs. Maryland was hit very hard with a winter storm in 2014-2015 and it devastated a majority of the state. Property owners were scrambling to find companies qualified to remove ice dams from their roof. Many property owners did not know the difference between proper ice dam removal and someone with a hammer. Worse yet were the companies that were lying to the home owners and showing up with high psi pressure washers that they claimed were steamers. These companies were damaging roofs and victimizing their customers.
The companies that were doing ice dam removal correctly were using low pressure steamers which are designed for ice dam removal. These companies truly cared about doing their job with no damage to the customer’s roof. We as an association (IDSAFE) seek out these good companies and verify their equipment and ultimately allow these customers to become members. We seek to guide you in the right direction when searching for a quality ice dam removal company who uses the right equipment.
