Hello,I have a problem with ice building up in gutters.Ice damming as it would be called.There are plastic screens in gutters for keeping leaves out and i wondering if they would cause this,or add to the problem.The roof is a 9/12 pitch with R-30 insulation in attic,and Foam baffles in ever pocket were insulation meets roof,Eves are open and there is Ridge vent along the peak of entire roof.Just wondering if the plastic leave guards are more of a problem than a help.I live in NE PA and we have had a lot of snow this year,and im wondering how i can prevent ice damming from happening.
