Ice Dam Removal


We do not perform estimates on ice dam removal. There are just too many variables including the height of the work, the roof pitch and how much ice needs to be removed. All of these variables factor into how long it takes to steam an ice dam. When our crew arrives on site they will consult with you to determine the extent of the work you wish done. Expect us to remove approximately 7-10 lineal feet of ice dam per hour after the equipment is set up but there are no guarantys as to how long it may take. We work as quickly as possible to get the job done.

Pricing Policies

Water spicket must be available: Our steamer requires water and must be provided by the home. We can spend time turning on your spicket or you can be prepared to have it on when we arrive. If we arrive and you have no water available, we will not be able to steam and you will be charged our standard mileage charge & 2-hour minimum.

Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment with us, there is no charge if notified 24 hours in advance; otherwise we charge a $100 cancellation fee.

Mileage: A round trip charge from our shop to your home will be charged at $2.50 per mile to cover the cost of the vehicle and the workers.

2-hour Minimum: We do have a 2-hour minimum requirement. If your home takes 1 hour to remove the dam, you will be charged for 2 hours. If your home takes more than 2 hours, we charge by the minute until the crew is packed up and leaves the site.

Right to refuse work: We reserve the right to refuse work for any reason we deem necessary. Usually it is based on us deeming a roof too dangerous to work on. If we deem your roof too dangerous, you will not be charged anything.
