Eaves: Roof Ice Dams Protection

Without proper eaves protection, your roof may experience leaks and damages from roof ice dams.

Your roof eaves are vulnerable to ice buildup and the resulting water penetration. They are the coldest part of your roof since they are not warmed by heat escaping from your home into the attic.

Melted snow may run down the roof towards the eaves and gutter. Because the roof eaves are colder, the water may refreeze and cause the formation of ice dams. Water backs up under the roof shingles or behind the fascia boards.

The results can include damage to your attic, ceilings, walls, and floors of your home. The additional moisture will also decrease the effectiveness of your insulation.
