Ice and Water Barriers: Keep Your Roof Safe!
Everybody talks about the importance of periodic roofing inspection and maintenance, but have you ever heard about ice and water barriers? They're like shields installed under the shingles or tiles on your roof; their main purpose is to stop water and ice from causing potential damage to your roof and property structure.
Ice dams occur when melted snow and ice refreeze, allowing water to seep beneath the roofing materials, leading to significant structural issues such as rot, mold, and more. Therefore, these barriers are an excellent way to prevent leaks, stop ice dams, make your roof last longer, and save energy and money in the long run.

However, it is also important to mention that installing these barriers can be a bit tricky, especially on an already existing roof, so please look for professional help. It is also required to keep up with periodic roofing inspections, maintenance, and repairs to ensure your home or commercial business stays safe all year long.
