Despite the images of the Nevada desert and its reputation for being the driest state in the United States, little people realize that Nevada actually means ‘snowy’ in Spanish. Winters in the north of the Silver State are particularly long and cold compared to the other areas and heavy snow is common. The city of Reno lies 22 miles from Lake Tahoe, which means local residents expect freezing temperatures and snowfall each winter.

With snow falling in the biggest little city in the world, ice dams have become a problem in the region and are costing residents thousands of dollars in home repair each year. Ice Dams form when the heat from your home rises and melts the snow lying on your roof. As it turns to water, it runs down the roof and freezes again on the cold eaves. This forms a dam, which blocks proper drainage and forces the water to back up into your roof shingles. This is where your leaks come from, as well as damaged walls, floors and paintwork. Costly repairs are the last thing you want during the winter.

That’s why it’s important to not wait until it’s too late. HotEdge can protect your home and stop any ice dams forming during the winter months.
