Your rooftop needs to breathe. Your home has to endure a lot of drastic temperature shifts and weather conditions throughout the year. It's your home, afterall.

As the years weather upon your home you may find yourself with a myriad of issues, but ventilation is easily overlooked as the cause.

Simply put, without proper ventilation, your roof will not release heat properly during the winter time, hence it will cook a layer of snow, which runs downward, and refreezes where the heat is not as intense.

As the problem worsens, you will have a first weakened, then outright sagging portion of rooftop, and if left unchecked, it will eventually come through (this will take several seasons.. it will not happen in one).

In short : It is important to ensure that your roof is properly ventilated.

icedam removal

British Columbia roofing contractors know the hazards of ice build up and how to ventilate your roof and alleviate the problem. Ice damming is especially problematic when expansion occurs, causing shingles, tiles and seams to break. Still the easiest way to tell where your hotspots are: Watch for melting snow.

The materials we use are guaranteed against a wide variety of problems, but just as with anything, the proper care and attention can ensure your roof for ages beyond any warranty. The cap flashing shown here is in fact too short to reach the gravel surface where it would provide protection for the tar against the sun's UV rays. As this occurs, the initial drainage strategy no longer applies, hence water begins to pond, and cause further damage.
