Ice damming is the buildup of ice and snow on steep sloped roofs. While icicles on your roof can look charming during the holidays, they can be sign of a serious roofing problem. When snow melts on your roof and then refreezes as temperatures drop, the ice pushes its way under your shingles and lifts them up as it expands.
Ice damming can result in roof leaks, damage to your insulation, and water penetration into your home. The best way to prevent ice damming is to have a leak barrier installed under your shingles. As a GAF MasterElite Contractor, we recommend GAF’s Weather Watch Leak Barrier (https://www.gaf.com/en-us/roofing-products/residential-roofing-products/leak- barriers/mineral-surfaced/weatherwatch).
