Ice Dam Removal Expert Tests Homeowners’ Readiness for Ice Dam Season with 20-Question Quiz

Share Article

Every year, ice dams cause leaking roofs and expensive repairs. How can homeowners be better-prepared for ice dams in the winter of 2014-15?

If you get even half the questions right, you’re better-prepared for ice dam season than probably 90% of your neighbors.

One of America’s most-interviewed experts on ice dams has just released a do-it-yourself resource to help homeowners prepare for the wintertime hazard of multi-ton ice slabs forming on roofs.

Joe Palumbo, owner of the Ice Dam Removal Guys company in Minneapolis, MN, believes that knowledge is what homeowners need to protect their homes in the winter. “The only way you can prevent ice dams is if you know how they form, and when they start forming,” Palumbo says.

Ice dams are caused by a combination of heavy snowfall and roofs that overheat due to poor ventilation and insulation. Homeowners in states with heavy snowfall - particularly in the Midwest - face them every year. Ice dams often lead to water leaks in the home, and in the worst cases can also lead to costly interior damage.

In an effort to raise awareness and to help concerned homeowners minimize the dangers posed by ice dams, Palumbo’s company has prepared a 20-question quiz.

Titled “How Prepared Are You for Ice Dam Season?” it is available for free on the company’s website, IceDamRemovalGuys.com.

In the quiz, homeowners are asked multiple-choice questions about how ice dams form, how to prevent them, and how to deal with them if they do form. Quiz-takers can see their answers and the explanations immediately.

“If you get even half the questions right, you’re better-prepared for ice dam season than probably 90% of your neighbors,” Palumbo says.
