Brand New Roof and Ice Damming Still a Problem in Ottawa

There are many factors to consider when evaluating possibilities to determine root cause of things.

For starters, what is the difference in temperature inside your attic and outside? If the temperature is similar inside and outside, then we know that air circulation inside the attic is significant.

Now we have to inspect the dept of the insulation inside the attic. There is a chart to refer to when determining the R value of the insulation. In my opinion, R40 should be the minimum for Ottawa Ontario Homes.

Up next, we must rule out whether the insulation is compressed or not. Compressed insulation lose its R value if you didn’t know.

As a preventive Maintenance, snow and ice can be removed from the first 6 feet of your roof to minimize accumulation of ice. Sometimes Design of your Eavestroughing is the source of leaks and problems. Other times design of your roof is why the ice is present in some areas.
