What are Ice Dams?

Winter is nothing new to anyone who has lived in or visited Northern Michigan. But when snow melts or rain freezes, many homes are left with a buildup of snow and ice that can cause ice dams.

The Problem:

Ice dams are an accumulation of frozen water in the gutter system or roof edge that prevent natural draining of melting snow.

When warm, interior air from your attic causes the roof to heat up and more water melts, it can sneak under shingles, leaking into your home. And once water is in, it’s in. Water leakage can quickly damage insulation, drywall, and electrical systems. This can easily lead to wood rot, mildew, and mold.
In addition to interior damage, over time the extreme weight of ice and snow can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of an otherwise healthy roof.

What we do:

Protect your roof by removing ice dams before problems arise.

Instead of using high pressure to blast off buildups of ice and snow, we use a high-quality steaming machine. Our equipment and technique has proven to be the safest and most effective way to remove ice dams and stubborn snow.
Our snow and ice removal specialists will examine your home to determine the best way to remove any ice dams or snow buildup.

After setting up our equipment and finding a safe place to work from, a Two Glass Gents technician will use our chemical-free steam machine to safely remove ice and excess snow—leaving your roof looking as good as it does in spring.

Snow Removal

Let Us Do The

Heavy Lifting

What we do
Heavy Snow

The Problem

While a fresh blanket of snow certainly is beautiful, residents of Northern Michigan are all too familiar with shoveling their way out in sub-zero temperatures. On top of this, the intense weight of snow and ice on a roof or deck can severely damage its structural integrity.

Signs the weight of snow may be too much for your roof:

Noticeable bends or cracks in the attic
A sagging, wavy look in sections of your roof
Cracks and leaks in the interior of your ceiling
Cracks in your drywall or around door frames
Damaged or splintering rafter beams

Our Process:

If you’d prefer someone else do the heavy lifting, call Two Glass Gents to get on our snow removal schedule.

Sidewalks, pathways, and decks:

Keeping sidewalks and pathways clear of snow and ice can prevent the all too common injuries resulting from winter slips and falls. This is especially the case in high traffic areas, like outside a business or main entrance of a home.
Our snow shoveling crew can keep your sidewalks, decks, and steps clear throughout the winter. Call us in advance to schedule a routine maintenance. Or if you prefer, we can come on a need-only basis.

Why we avoid salt as a melting agent:

Many companies and homeowners have used salt to melt snow and ice. While this may work in a pinch, over time the use of salt can cause erosion and damage your concrete. At Two Glass Gents, we use Ice Melt, a totally safe product that excels at preventing ice from forming on your walkways.
