Ice Damns

Posted by Rob on April 29th, 1998 09:54 AM

Have a 50's, 2-sty brick georgian - no eves/overhangs to speak of. Attic is well insulated with fiberglass roll insulation, static vents in the roof. Trouble, I think, is ice damns in winter. Visually see huge ice formations 'spilling' out of gutters, usually right near downspouts. I thinki this is where my water in the wall trouble is d=coming from as during warm seasons no matter how much rain, no leaks. Trouble is, neighboring, identical homes don't seem to have this. I don;t excesively heat the house, have storms on windows, and know my attic is much more insulated than theirs (I've been in most of 'em). Any ideas on attempts to stop this, short of tearing off roof? Want to stop it BEFORE I patch walls/ceilings AGAIN. Thanks.
