Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing contractors in South Bend Indiana were hired to remove and replace this roof. It had experienced several serious chimney leaks including ice dams at the eave edges. We resolved the ice dam issues by simply adjusting the insulation. This was to ensure that the intake vents at the eave edges of the home were not blocked and therefore allowed cooler dryer air to circulate under the roof deck and exhaust through the filtered ridge vent with an external baffle. In addition, we solved the chimney issues by installing WinterGuard ice and water shield around the perimeter of the chimney and installed a new metal flashing kit with counter flashing.

WinterGuard is a composite material of asphalt polymers, formed into a rolled sheet. The asphalt makes it vapor-tight, and the polymers make the asphalt elastic and sticky. This protective barrier is able to stretch and seal around nails driven through it. Placing WinterGuard a minimum of 24″ past the interior wall line at the eave provides your first line of defense.

The sand surface of Winter Guard also provides a huge safety factor for installers while walking on top of the shield.
