Upcoming Thaw May Hurt Your Home
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- From roofs to pipes, winter weather can do a number on your home. Drive around metro neighborhoods and you are bound to see ice dams; you may even have them on your roof. “As the heat comes up through the home, it permeates through the insulation blanket and into the attic. Now you have warm air hitting the bottom of the sheeting. Once that starts to happen, the melting occurs up here,” said Rusty Pearson.
