I had a ice dam removed when I sam icicles coming out of the vent on the underside of the porch. All the ice and snow is off the roof now. I tarped off a section of the porch and am running a Space heater to try and dry everything out. Am I doing the right thing or am I going to have to tear the ceiling out of my porch? I took the face plates and insulation off the electrical outlet and it is dripping water. The house is 10 years old and I am flustered on what to do now. thanks
Just let it dry out. Things should be fine.
If the soffits were full of ice there is/was quite a bit of water in your wall.
