Considering A Ductless Heat Pump? 4 Things To Keep In Mind

Posted by on Nov 1st, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Considering A Ductless Heat Pump? 4 Things To Keep In Mind

If you are in the market for a new heating system, you may be considering making the switch to a ductless heat pump system instead of a conventional furnace. Ductless heat pumps provide several benefits to homeowners, though they are probably not for everyone. In order to make an informed choice, here are four key things to keep in mind: Ductless Heat Pumps Provide Year-Round Comfort Ductless heat pumps are unique because they provide heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. This means that you only need to have one system installed to provide comfort year-round, rather than having separate heating and air conditioning systems installed in your home. Some homeowners previously found that ductless heat pumps did not work quite as effectively in extreme cold, although recent technological advances seem to be making that a problem of the past. In most cases, a ductless heat pump system will keep your home cool in the summer and toasty warm in the winter without high energy usage or bills. Heat Pumps Offer Zone Control at Your Fingertips Another major perk of ductless heat pumps is that they offer complete zone control, allowing you to create mini heating and cooling zones throughout your home. For example, you may have a heat pump unit installed in each bedroom plus the living room. You can then choose which areas of the home to heat or cool at any given time or even set different zones to different temperature preferences. Your daughter who is always cold can have her room set to a higher temperature than the rest of the house. This not only ensures the comfort of your entire family but also helps you save money on energy costs, since you won’t be heating or cooling rooms or areas that aren’t in use. You May Qualify for a Tax Rebate One drawback of ductless heat pumps is that they can be a bit pricey, especially compared to an old school furnace system. The price goes up depending on your square footage and how many individual zones you are interested in heating and cooling. Luckily, the federal government offers tax rebates to help offset this upfront cost, and some states offer their own tax rebate as well. These tax rebate systems are in place to encourage more homeowners to make the switch to eco-friendly heating and cooling options like ductless heat pumps. Ductless Heat Pumps Offer Long-term Savings In addition to tax rebates, when you make the switch to a ductless heat pump system you will most likely see your energy bills go down. Ductless heat pumps use substantially less energy than traditional heating and air conditioning systems, especially if you take advantage of the zoning control. A lot of heat and cooling loss in homes can be blamed on ductwork, where newly cooled or heated air tends to end up instead of in your living space. Since ductless heat pumps don’t involve any duct work, the cool or warm air stays right where you want it. Savings will vary depending on your specific usage, but Energy Star certified systems should cut your energy costs by around 30% annually. As you can see, switching to a ductless heat pump can lead to long-term financial and energy savings, even if the upfront cost...

Paint and Lighting Considerations When Equipping a Home Theater

Posted by on Sep 12th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Paint and Lighting Considerations When Equipping a Home Theater

While selecting the right audiovisual systems and components are important to maximizing the home-theater experience, there is much more to creating an enjoyable space than just buying the fanciest technology available. Projectors and speakers are obviously important, but so are other factors, a couple of which include the room’s paint and ambient lighting. Below are some considerations that can make a big difference when it comes to painting and lighting a theater room. Painting the theater room One of the most important factors in making a home-theater experience as enjoyable as possible is to minimize any visual distractions. In the average home theater, those distractions include inadvertent light reflections caused by improper paint selections. When it comes to paint, here are the most important factors: Paint sheen – It is common for living areas and dens in homes to be painted with a semi-gloss or satin paint. While these finishes are good choices for everyday life, they are not ideal for a room where light reflection is undesirable. That is why home theaters should be painted using either flat or eggshell finishes. Flat is the optimal sheen for a home theater; however, it is important to keep in mind that a flat sheen is also the most difficult to keep clean. If you have young children or use the theater room for other purposes, then you probably should paint with an eggshell finish to make cleaning the wall simpler. Paint color – If you have ever looked inside a camera, you will notice everything is painted black, and that is for good reason. The least reflective of all colors, black is also the best choice for a home theater if you wish to eliminate as much stray light as possible. Unfortunately, many people don’t wish to have a room in their home painted completely black due to aesthetic reasons. That is why you might want to consider alternatives that work nearly as well; for example, dark browns and charcoal grays are excellent color choices for a home theater. Even then, if you aren’t comfortable with a room that is painted completely in a dark color, you can still consider painting the wall behind the screen in a darker shade. In addition, painting the ceiling in a dark color can also help control reflections. Lighting the theater room Another consideration that will make the best viewing possible in your home theater is properly lighting the room, especially if you plan to use the room for multiple purposes. Lighting should be carefully planned before installation, as rewiring and purchasing new fixtures to replace hurriedly installed ones are costly mistakes. When planning lighting in the theater room, here are a couple of things to keep in mind. Fixture type and direction – Ideally, if a theater room is simultaneously used for viewing and other activities, light fixtures should be recessed into the ceiling and focused on specific areas. There should never be a direct line of sight between a light source and the screen, as that will open up opportunities for reflection. In addition, by “spotlighting” areas that will be used, such as a game table or seating, usage is maximized and will avoid the need to use higher outputs as measured in lumens. Lighting control – Another helpful aspect to consider...

5 Tips For Labeling Your Fall Protection Equipment

Posted by on Jul 26th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 5 Tips For Labeling Your Fall Protection Equipment

You may have several reasons for labeling your fall protection equipment. For example, you may want to assign equipment to individual workers, label the equipment for cleaning or storage purposes, or simply state your ownership of the equipment. However, when labeling fall protection equipment, it is important that you do not compromise the equipment. Following these tips will help you preserve the strength of your equipment while labeling it as necessary.  Use a Permanent Marker to Label Equipment  When labeling your equipment, you should use a permanent marker. This is for several reasons. First, a permanent marker will not wash off when you wash your equipment. Secondly, the soft tip of the permanent marker will not damage the fibers of the equipment, whereas a sharper writing implement, such as a ballpoint pen, may. Also, a permanent marker will likely be more visible and easier to read than most other writing implements.  Avoid Labeling Directly on Webbing Material  Most fall protection equipment comes with a label attached to the equipment, which you can safely write on. It is best to write on this label when you need to because writing directly on the equipment can cause deterioration of fibers, especially when exposed to sunlight. If your equipment does not have a label, it may be safer to write on metal components rather than webbing components. If you absolutely must write on a webbing component, you should use a Sharpie brand marker, as these have been tested to not damage nylon or polyester webbing.  Be Sure to Label the Expiration Date of the Equipment  All fall equipment has a suggested lifespan from the manufacturer. After this period, the equipment should be retired, even if it does not show signs of wear. In order to remember the expiration date of each piece of equipment, you should include the first date of use or the date of purchase (according to the manufacturer’s recommendations) on the label. You may also want to write the final use date on the label. This will make inspecting the equipment and keeping track of retirement dates easier for your equipment manager.  Use Paper Bands to Temporarily Label Equipment  If you need to temporarily label a piece of equipment, you can use a paper wrist band. These can fit around a harness, rope, or tether so you can set them aside for use by a certain person, for inspection, or for washing. If you choose a bright color that contrasts with your fall prevention equipment, these tags should be easy to see. Wrist bands are often meant for multi-day use, so they should hold up for several days, if you are using them to label equipment for individual workers on a project. They will also be easy to remove once you no longer need the label on them. However, when cutting them off, you should be careful to not cut or nick any webbing material.  Do Not Label Faulty or Old Equipment as Out of Service  It is often recommended that you label damaged, faulty, or old equipment as out of service. However, it is possible that someone will not see the label and use the equipment anyway. A better option is to destroy the damaged equipment so it cannot be used again. For example, you may cut the loops of...

3 Things You Can Do When Experiencing A Clogged Drain

Posted by on Jun 6th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Things You Can Do When Experiencing A Clogged Drain

There is nothing more annoying than trying to use the sink and realizing it is clogged. As you watch the water take several minutes to go down, you may wonder what you can do to fix the problem. Clogged drains can occur when grease, pieces of food and even strands of hair fall into the pipes from the sink. Although it is a major annoyance, you can try these out to stop this problem. Remove the Extra Water From the Sink If the water is taking longer than anticipated, start removing it from the sink using a large cup or basin and then pour it into a large bucket. It may take several back and forth trips before you have finally removed the water from inside the sink, but it is the first step you need to take before you can focus on clearing out the drain. Use a Plumbing Snake The plumbing snake is thin and long enough to reach into a drain and pull different types of debris right out. In fact, some professional plumbers use these snakes to help lift out dirt, hair and other particles from pipes. If you do not have one of these snakes, you can adjust a metal wire hanger, hold it down into the drain and then twist it around a few times before pulling it up to remove any of the junk that is causing you to have this frustrating problem. Pour a Hot Water Concoction Down the Drain Hot water may help to clear a pipe by breaking down the junk inside of it. Place four cups of water into a large pot and put it on the stove until it starts to boil. As soon as you see the water boiling, throw in a tablespoon of salt and a tablespoon of dish detergent. Mix the water with the salt and detergent for about a minute and then pour it right down into the drain. The combination of ingredients may help remove anything inside of the pipe that is preventing the water from flowing through freely and rapidly. You can use any kind of dish detergent you prefer, but the dish detergents designed to fight grease are the best kind to use when you are trying to clear the junk out. Hire a Professional Plumber There are times when a clogged drain is not too difficult to fix. If it is something minor, you may easily solve the problem by getting rid of the extra water from the sink, digging down into the drain with the plumbing snake and then using the hot water concoction to break apart any of the leftover debris inside of it. If you are still having trouble after trying each of those steps, you will need to contact a plumber to resolve the problem. The plumber may need to go under the sink and open up some of the pipes to see if there is something specific inside of them. The plumber you hire may remove the trap pipe from under the sink and empty out its contents. It is not uncommon to find a buildup of debris inside of the trap pipe. The professional plumber would clean it out thoroughly before placing it back on and making sure to tighten it so it...

Current Garage Door Too Old To Protect Your Home? Replace It With A Composite Wood Garage Door

Posted by on May 6th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Current Garage Door Too Old To Protect Your Home? Replace It With A Composite Wood Garage Door

If your garage door is damaged by old age or structural weakness, replace the door right away. Installing the right garage door, or overhead door, can help protect your garage and home from a number of problems, including bad weather, heat loss and theft. One of the options you have is composite wood. Composite wood garage doors look similar to natural wood but have the insulation and strength of stainless steel. In addition, composite wood is considered low maintenance, which may help you save money on repairs in the future. Here are some facts about composite wood garage doors to help you learn more about them. Keeps Out Bad Weather and Seals in Heat Depending on how deteriorated your current overhead door is, it may not have the integrity to withstand the damaging effects of moisture and heat. The moisture produced by heavy rain, ice and snow can potentially rot the wood in your garage and home over time if it penetrates your old garage door. If the garage becomes too humid or hot during the summer, mold and mildew can take advantage of these conditions and grow throughout your property. Composite wood garage doors come with several insulative features that keep these issues at bay. Composite wood garage doors typically feature protective weather stripping, or seals, that deter water from seeping into the garage. The seals typically line the bottom and sides of the doors, which are places water tends to enter most. Depending on the contractor you choose for your installation, the seals may sit inside a protective metal track coated or finished with aluminum oxide or another type of chemical that wards off rust and corrosion. Aluminum oxide is used in a wide range of industries because of its protective properties. Additionally, composite wood doors may have insulation placed right inside the panels. Insulated panels may help prevent heat loss in the winter when you use your furnace or central heating system, especially if your garage attaches directly to your home. Heat can escape the home and enter the garage. If the garage door doesn’t have sufficient insulation, the heat may seep through it to the outside. Now that you know how composite wood garage doors insulate your home, it’s time to learn how they protect you from theft and burglary. Protects Your Home From Physical Damage Caused By Burglary In recent news, a number of homes become prey to thieves and other criminals who use coat hangers and other handy devices to open garage doors. The thieves also look for overhead doors that have some type of damage they can take advantage of, such as cracks, dents and peeling wood. Burglars may be able to kick or push down your garage door because it lacks integrity and strength. The material used to construct composite garage doors can help secure your home against crime. Although composite wood overhead doors have wooden frames covered with recycled sheets of fiberboard, the material is considered as strong and reliable as steel. Fiberboard undergoes several processes that increase its density and strength, including adding resins, or special glues, to the material during fabrication. Most composite wood materials are cured or hardened with heat to help it last longer.  Composite wood material may also come with special chemicals and lacquers that increase its...

Tips To Help You Stud Weld Aluminum Pieces

Posted by on Apr 6th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Tips To Help You Stud Weld Aluminum Pieces

If you want to weld your own artistic tables and chairs for your porch or back patio, then it is best to work with aluminum. The metal is highly forgiving and easy to mold or bend into shape when you purchase sheets or rods. Aluminum welds can be made with a stud welding gun, and the attachments will be strong and retain a good deal of weight. However, this will only happen if you do the right things before and during the welding process. Keep reading to learn about these things. Complete Proper Cleaning You will need to clean the surfaces of the aluminum where you will be adding a weld. While aluminum typically looks clean, shiny, and free of rust, it will contain a layer of oxidation. Specifically, the metal will contain a passive layer of aluminum oxide on the surface. The surface layer will build as the metal becomes exposed to oxygen. The aluminum oxide is considered stable and it will protect the underlying metal from corrosion. This is especially important when water comes into contact with it. While the aluminum oxide is instrumental in keeping the metal rust-resistant, it will stop you from making strong bonds with your stud welding gun. The coating must be removed as well as any contaminants on the surface. Aluminum is a fairly soft and thin metal, so you cannot use a grinder, power sander, or any other type of tool to release the coating. You should use a steel wire brush instead. The steel is stronger than the aluminum, so it will remove the oxide coating. However, using the brush by hand will not thin the metal substantially and ruin it. Once you have the steel wire brush, use circular motions across the surface of the aluminum where you intend on making your welds. You will see some scratch marks where the surface of the aluminum has been scraped away. Clean metal is needed to make a good weld, so make sure that all grease and dirt is released from the surface after you use the brush. Nail polish remover that contains acetone will act as a good degreasing agent. Pour a bit of it on a cloth and wipe down the surface of the metal. Wipe it dry afterwards. Prepare Your Gun If you want the strongest weld, then it is wise to purchase and use a stud welding gun that utilizes a shielding gas. This gas helps to increase thermal conduction through the arc of the gun. The increase in heat helps to form a stronger bond between the metal pieces being welded. This is ideal since aluminum is not as strong as other types of metals. When choosing the gas that releases from the gun, you can opt for either argon or helium gas. A mixture of the two can be purchased too.  Since the use of a gas will increase the heat of the stud welding arc, the temperature will also increase along the tip of the device. This can cause deterioration across a typical tip. To prevent this and the shortening of the weld arc, make sure to place a ceramic tip on the device. Also, aluminum studs are needed. A steel stud may be stronger than an aluminum one. However, placing a different type of metal,...

Plaster Crack Repair – Stabilizing Keyways

Posted by on Mar 25th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Plaster Crack Repair – Stabilizing Keyways

If you have a beautiful and smooth plaster wall in your home that has retained a crack, then you cannot simply add joint compound, mortar, or a plaster repair mixture to fill in the crack. The crack will open up soon after the repair is made because most plaster cracks involve the lath and plaster that make up the base of the wall underneath the smooth surface. This means that special repairs need to be made deep within the wall to ensure a lasting fix. To understand why this is the case and to also learn about some tips on stabilizing plaster wall keyways, keep reading.  Understanding The Keyways Lath and plaster walls were constructed in many homes built before the 1950s, and this means that you likely have one of these traditional constructions if your house dates back before the 1950s. If so, your walls will be made out of thin pieces of wood that run horizontally. The beams are attached to the studs and left open with almost 10 millimeters of space between each one. Plaster is forced into the gaps between the beams and a thin layer is placed over the beams as well. This forms the keyways or the sections of bonded plaster that sit in between the wooden beams. These keyways are the base of the entire plaster wall and another two layers of plaster are placed over this base while it is still wet. The result is a plaster wall that is completely bonded between the layers.  A typical crack in a plaster wall will occur when one of the previously bonded layers pulls away from the base. You will typically be able to press around the crack and feel loose pieces of plaster when this happens. Some people will try to simply fill in the crack to repair the aesthetics of the wall. However, this does not rebuild the strength that was previously retained through the bonding process. The resulting repair will be a weak one that will likely fall apart. Stabilizing The Keyways To prevent this sort of issue, you will need to rebuild the plaster throughout all of its layers. This means stabilizing the keyways, repairing them, and rebuilding from the base to the top layer of plaster. You will need to use a utility knife and a small paint scraper to loosen and then force loose plaster from the crack. Continue to break the plaster away if it is loose or if it has pulled away from the lath. Stop removing plaster once you find solid keyways between the base beams of the wall. Once you reveal all the broken keyways, you will need to stabilize them. You can do this with plaster screws and washers. Purchase a number of these hardware pieces from your local home store. Place the washer on the end of the screw close to the head. Start adding screws in the solid keyway about one-half inch to the left of the loose plaster. Use an electric screwdriver tool to force the screw and washer into the keyway. When you add the screw, you want the head to sit recessed a few millimeters in the plaster. The flexible washer will then bend a small amount and sit concave across the keyway. This will allow the washer to adhere to new plaster while the screw stabilizes...

Privacy Fences & Drones: 5 Ways To Deter Drones From Your Property

Posted by on Feb 29th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Privacy Fences & Drones: 5 Ways To Deter Drones From Your Property

With advancements in drones and flying technology, it may be hard to find true privacy in your own backyard. If you find that neighborhood drones are getting too close to your backyard, then there are ways to deter the flying machines and keep your property as private as possible. By working with a fence contractor, you can implement five different ways to protect your backyard, increase privacy, and deter drones from flying over the area. Choosing the different designs and features depends on your actual landscape and budget that you have in mind. Lattice Installations Along with your fence installation, a contractor can add a matching lattice to your property. A lattice includes four posts with a large fencing panel installed on the top. This creates a similar look to a gazebo or back deck. The lattice design can block out a lot of the view from a drone and provide some nice shade in your backyard. When the materials match designs like cedar wood or vinyl, it helps create a unique look in your yard while still providing privacy. The lattice can be installed anywhere in your backyard, but they are commonly found right off the back of the home. This makes it ideal for grilling and entertaining in privacy. Increased Fence Height Add some extra height to your backyard fences to help increase the privacy and deter drones from attempting to fly into your backyard. A traditional fence usually ranges from 4 to 6 feet in height. Extra privacy can be added to your backyard by installing a fence that is anywhere from 8 to 10 feet. Anything higher than that may need special permits, but it can be done if you are seeking the extra privacy. Along with blocking out drones, a higher fence can deter potential criminals from hopping over your fence and gaining access to the yard. Edge to Edge Designs If there are a large openings in your backyard design, this area could be a vulnerability and create easy access points for drones to fly in and out of. Create a desire for privacy by building a privacy fence that goes from edge to edge of your backyard. This will deter drones from flying over the property because if it had to land, there is no way to retrieve it. Not only will it help deter drones, but it’s a great way to define your property lines and know the boundaries on the area. A fence contractor can create a seamless design that connects on all the edges and features access gates to get into the backyard. Not only does this type of area help deter drones, but it is a great space for pets and children to play safely. Stone Fence Even if drones are not flying directly over your backyard, the noise pollution that they create can be annoying. Help drown out drone noise and buzzing by having a stone fence installed in your backyard. A stone fence is thick and absorbs a lot of the surrounding sounds from your neighborhood. This includes traffic, lawn care items like mowers, and the buzzing of a drone. A stone fence also is a great visual design that can be added to your backyard. There are many stone finishes you can have installed, including...

Two Ways To Make Your Custom Pool More Eco-Friendly

Posted by on Feb 5th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Two Ways To Make Your Custom Pool More Eco-Friendly

There’s no denying that a backyard pool isn’t particularly environmentally friendly, considering the amount of electricity, water, and chemicals needed to maintain it. That doesn’t mean people who are concerned about the Earth have to refrain from getting one. Here are a couple of things you can do to customize a pool to reduce the impact it has on the environment. Use Natural or Earth-Friendly Methods to Heat Your Pool In general, heaters are installed to help keep pool water warm. Although these heaters are fairly energy efficient, they still use electricity or gas to function, both of which can contribute to pollution and greenhouse gasses. For instance, 39% of electricity produced in the US is generated using coal. You can reduce the carbon footprint of your pool and save money by using natural or eco-friendly methods to heat it. One option, particularly if you live in a cool clime, is to paint the pool a dark color. Darker colors such as navy blue absorb heat from sun rays, which can naturally warm pool water. An alternative option is to make pool warmers by soldering pieces of black tarp onto a few hula hoops and floating them on top of the pool. The dark material will trap heat from the sun and warm the pool in turn. If you prefer to use a regular heater in your pool, install one that’s solar powered. This type of heater uses solar panels to generate the electricity needed to heat the pool. Since sunlight is free, this can save you a lot of money on your energy costs. For instance, warming a pool using a gas-powered heater costs an average of $2,000 per year. That’s money you would save by switching to solar. Be aware, though, that a solar system can cost anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000, with the average cost landing around $5,500. For comparison, many gas and electric heaters can be purchased for under $2,000 but do cost anywhere between $300 and $600 to operate. Use Alternative Methods to Keep the Pool Clean Conventional swimming pools commonly use chlorine and other chemicals to kill bacteria and keep algae at bay. However, these chemicals can be hazardous to the environment and humans as well if not used correctly. For instance, chlorine sometimes combines with impurities such as sweat and lotion to produce a byproduct called chloramines that can irritate the skin and eyes of people swimming in the water. Use alternative methods to clean your pool to minimize environmental and health hazards related to use of pool chemicals. One thing you can do is to use aquatic plants to rid the pool of bacteria and impurities. For instance, sphagnum moss can filter out bacteria from pools for up to 30 days and can be composted after use. Other plants such as cattails, water lilies, and duckweed can be planted in a smaller connected pool that will filter out contaminants as the water circulates between the large and small pools. If done correctly, you may be able to forego chemicals completely. Ozone sterilization is another option for keeping your pool bacteria free without use of chemicals. This type of cleaning system uses electricity to activate ozone (also known as tri-atomic oxygen) into a sterilizer that can kill pathogens, bacteria, and other contaminants...

How to Spot, Remove & Prevent Roof Ice Dams

Posted by on Jan 19th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on How to Spot, Remove & Prevent Roof Ice Dams

With a couple of months still left of winter’s snowy weather, it is important to check your home’s roof for any excess buildup of snow and ice. Rooftop ice dams can push melt water five to ten feet up through the shingles of your roof, causing damage to shingles, your underlying roof, and indoor aspects of your roof. Here are some signs you can look for of a possible ice dam on your roof, how to remedy the ice dam, and prevent future ice dams from forming. Signs of a Roof Ice Dam If you are concerned your home may have an ice dam growing on its roof, you don’t always need to get onto the roof to find out. Getting up on your roof that is covered in snow and possibly ice is dangerous and you can usually see ice dams from the safety of the ground.  When you look at the front slope of your roof, you may have an ice dam if you can see a thick build-up of snow that looks like a snowdrift. If you view this snow drift from a side view, the snow will be thicker at the bottom edge of the roof. From the front view you might be able to see a thin, dark layer of ice sandwiched between the roof and the layer of snow.  One of the best ways to determine if you have a roof ice dam is to look for large, numerous icicles hanging from the front of your roof. A really good indicator of an ice dam is when many of the icicles are two to three inches in diameter. Along with these icicles, you may see ice dripping from the soffit and underside of your roof, and down the front of your home’s exterior. If your roof is leaking water inside your home you suspect is from an ice dam, but you cannot see if from the ground, it may be an ice dam that has formed higher up on your roof. Ice dams can form around dormer windows or above skylights. In this situation you will need to get on the roof to locate the ice dam. Removing an Ice Dam If you have determined your roof has formed an ice dam, you should do what you can to remove the damage. With the help of a friend holding the ladder for you, climb up to the edge of your roof to chisel a channel through the ice dam so the snow melt can drain from the roof. Use a hammer claw and chisel channels every two to three feet along the ice dam of your roof. Make sure you don’t cut all the way down to the roofing shingles as this can cause damage to your shingles if you accidentally cut into them. You can also fill a nylon stocking with sodium chloride and lay it across the ice dam on your roof, with one end of the filled stocking poking over the edge of your roof. The sodium chloride will melt a channel through the ice dam to allow snow melt to drain from your roof without freezing. Remember the sodium chloride can corrode metal roofing materials, including the flashing and gutters. Ice Dam Prevention Ice dams form on your roof when your home’s heat warms your attic and roof. By sealing...
