Q. How much does a roof cost?A. This is a question that is impossible to answer online. Your roof is made up of several different components, i.e. decking, underlayment, shingles, valleys, ridge cap, flashings, ventilation, etc... To give you an accurate cost analysis, we would have to come do a thorough inspection to see what will be the best solution to protect your home.
Q. How do I avoid ice dams?
A. There is no way to totally avoid ice dams without removing the snow from the roof after each snowfall. Although, there are ways to protect your roof from ice dams. First and foremost, proper ventilation is key. Ice dams are formed by the snow melting at the peak of the roof and refreezing at the eave. This process is repeated several times, causing larger and larger ice dams each time. Proper ventilation will assist in keeping the temperature evenly distributed throughout the entire attic, helping the snow melt more evenly down the roof. The other main factor in preventing damage caused by ice dams is the use of ice and water shield in the valleys, along the eave lines, and around all protrusions through the roof.
