REMOVING ICE DAMS SAFELY with STEAM
Window Works’ Ice Dam division uses only steam for ice dam removal (roof and gutter ice). With the extremely cold temperatures here in New England, other approaches (ice picks, sledge hammers, axes…) often cause damage which can leave you with costly repairs. It is critical that your roof or gutter ice be removed with an actual steam machine, not just a high-temp power washer. Using a power washer will actually compound your troubles by adding more water to the situation.
ICE DAM REMOVAL COST
Due to the many variables involved in ice dam removal accurate pricing necessitates a couple steps:
1. A phone call. Typically, we will ask you a few questions over the phone regarding the pitch of your roof, thickness of the ice dam, and height of the roof. These answers will help us assess how long we think the job will take and then we will give you an hourly estimate for the cost.
2. Upon arrival, our crew will consult with you regarding the specific ice dam you need removed. This consultation will provide a much more accurate assessment and cost estimate. That being said, the cost of ice dam removal is based upon the actual time needed to complete the job.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR OUR ARRIVAL
We need 3 things: WATER, ELECTRICITY, and PAYMENT UPON COMPLETION.
Due to the necessity of getting inside to get water and electricity, we request that someone be home. We will need to connect our hoses to either a working outdoor faucet or inside sink and we’ll need electricity to run our steamer. Regarding payment, we prefer checks, but we do also accept credit cards.
