Ice Damming Issues – Menomonee Falls, WI
Leaving Air to Breathe
Reference # 91756
Over the winter, ice damming became an issue on the flat pitch area of this Menomonee Falls home. Ice dams form when snow melts on an upper, warmer part of a roof. The water then runs down toward the colder eave, where it freezes into ice. As the ice accumulates, it can back up under the roof shingles, where it melts again eventually dripping through the roof into the soffits, walls, and worst of all, the roof sheathing and leaking into the attic.
Upon inspection, it was discovered the attic wasn’t receiving sufficient ventilation which had caused sections of rot to occur near the soffit and sections of decking to become soft. New ridge vents were installed and the old soffit and fascia were replaced to allow for better air flow. Rather than match their existing shingle, the owners went with a more trusted shingle. They selected Owens Corning Oakridge shingles in the Driftwood color. The owners plan to wait for warmer weather before updating the garage roof to match the rest of the home.
