Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. What causes ice dams on our roof?
If you are dealing with ice dams, it is crucial to address the issues of inadequate attic insulation, poor attic ventilation, and clogged gutters. To swiftly resolve these problems and remove the ice dams, it is essential to get in touch with a professional roofing specialist.
Q2. Does attic air sealing help prevent ice damming?
To prevent ice dams and address issues such as drafty rooms, uneven temperatures, and high heating or cooling bills, it is essential to prioritize air sealing before adding insulation in your attic. By sealing air leaks, you can ensure that your attic insulation performs optimally. Neglecting to air seal before insulating may result in burying underlying air leaks (such as around pot lights, drywall to stud seams, pipe and wire holes, openings around chimneys and duct chases) under a foot or more of insulation.
