March 2021 and there is lots of snow and ice damming accumulated on many Ottawa homes. Few are smart enough to schedule Preventive Maintenance for snow and ice removal before it leaks.
Many homeowners wait for the leaks and learn it the hard way. Ice damming is the number one reason why any roof would leak this time of the year. Insurance will cover the damages caused by the water but they will not cover the cost associated with the source of the leak.
Main reason for ice to accumulate is : *Not enough roof ventilation. * Not enough insulation.
- If your roof ventilation is blocked under the snow, attic will heat up and snow will melt.
- If your insulation in the attic is old, got wet from previous leaks, or has lost its R rating, this can speed up the snow to melt.
- It can also caused by blocked soffits and not enough fresh air flow.
- If your attic is not same temperature as outside, you have problems to address.
