I’m afraid of getting an ice dam on my roof.

It definitely gets cold enough overnight during Fairfax City winters to freeze, so this is a valid concern. An ice dam forces water underneath the shingles and causes a leaky roof. There are precautions that can be taken to prevent this situation. It’s important to prevent heat loss through the roof that would warm up the snow enough to melt it during the day.
