Ice dam causes water damage in the walls
Ice dams block the flow of this water, causing the water to backup underneath the roof shingles. When the water backs up above the waterproof protective barrier, it begins leaking into your house. That's when sheetrock on the roof gets soft and caves in with attic insulation coming with it. Ice Dams can be very destructive. The damage of the property was extensive, there were multiple rooms with damage. SERVPRO of Rapid City was able to remove the damaged parts of the ceiling and walls. The proper drying equipment was place in each room throughout the house and we began the drying process.
