Pat Sullivan: Coping with ice dams

Ice that forms in your gutters can lead to damage to your roof and inside walls.

INDIANAPOLIS — All that snow is starting to melt off your house. And those icicles hanging off your gutters may look pretty, but they are a sign of potential damage from ice damming.

Pat from Sullivan Hardware and Garden appeared on 13Sunrise Sunday and discussed the cause and effects of ice damming, and what a homeowner can do to reduce damage when it happens and to prevent it in the first place.
