water dripping in the bathroom indicated it, and a quick check in the attic proved it. I carefully shovelled the roof as clean as I could get it, and a warm spell has completely bared the south side of the roof, completely clearing the gutters and ice dam (we've had no further problems, btw). did this ice dam cause any permanent damage? i thoroughly inspected the roof and see nothing that alarms me (tho I'm not a roofer :) I do see a few spots where the shingles have been lifted up, they are staying in the lifted position (say less than 1" up on one side) likley due to the cold. I'm told by a roofer that once the sun warms them right up in the spring, they'll go down.
any opinions? anything that I should be concerned with? anything specific to look for? if all else fails, in the spring when its warm I'm going to go up there with roofing cement and do as the instructions say to glue the few high ones down....the roof is in otherwise excellent condition.
