Why Does Ice Buildup on My Roof?

What is Ice Damming?

Ice damming or ice buildup on your roof is a common issue many homeowners in Northeast Ohio deal with. Throughout the winter, as it snows and gets a little warmer and then cold again, ice can start to form on your roof. 

Having ice buildup on your roof can cause a lot of roofing problems, such as leaks, excess moisture, and other issues that can ruin the integrity of your roof. 

A roof is a big investment, so keeping it free of ice damming is essential. 

Why Does Ice Buildup on My Roof?

Ice buildup can happen if your attic is not vented properly or if there is inadequate insulation in the attic. 

How to Avoid Ice Damming

Other than proper venting and insulation, there is a layer of your roof that prevents ice, snow, and rain from penetrating the roof into your home. This layer is called ice guard. Every home should have a layer of ice guard in order for their roof to be up to code.
