Roof Ventilation Retro-fit – Installed a Ventilated Soffit System to Prevent Ice Dams
We retro-fit a new ventilated soffit system onto all three condominium buildings in order to prevent ice dams from occurring along the eaves. The existing mansard roof had no ventilation at the fascia line where the two roofs meet and the result was numerous ice dams due to heat build-up. The solution was to remove that fascia and to build-out an overhang that would accept a ventilated soffit system. In addition to using a continuous soffit vent, we also installed additional insulation as needed along the eave and added ventilation baffles in between each rafter to provide an air channel through the insulation to help keep air flowing freely from the soffit to the ridge vent. The bottom line is that a roof that is poorly ventilated and ceilings that are inadequately insulated will lead to costly ice dams.
This beautiful Farrwood Green Condominium in Bradford, MA 01835 was remodeled with:
