Back to basics

In reply to NEW HOUSE, Water under roof, down wall, into basement!!! by Glenn Ajmo on January 5th, 2001 10:52 AM [Go to top of thread]

The snow melts on the roof, and then the water runs to the edge of the roof where it is colder and freezes. You need to have the builder add the proper amount of ventilation to the roof (attic space)to prevent the melting in the first place. 99% of the time these problems are caused by the lack of proper roof ventilation, allowing the temperature to build up under the roof and causing the snow to melt.
Good luck,
Dodgeman
