ICE GUARD PROTECTION

B_WeatherWatch.jpg


Your best defense against winter!

The WinterGuard™ Series of waterproofing shingle underlayments are applied
under roof shingles during new construction or re-roofing to protect your
home’s interior from winter leaks caused by ice dams and wind-driven rain.

How WinterGuard works.

WinterGuard is a composite material of asphalt polymers, formed into a rolled sheet.
The asphalt provides the waterproofing. The polymers make the asphalt elastic and sticky,
all the way through the sheet. The result is an amazing ability to both stretch and cling.
This means that WinterGuard doesn’t rip when stressed and seals around nails driven through it.
It sticks to a clean roof deck like glue.
And it won’t dry out during the warranted lifetime of an asphalt shingle system.
The result is a waterproof barrier beneath your shingle system,
which pooled water and wind-driven rain cannot penetrate.

What Causes Ice Back Up?

Ice dams are created when the upper part of your roof gets warm enough to melt the blanket of snow there, causing water to trickle down toward the eave. As the water reaches the cold eaves, it freezes and forms a sheet of ice. That sheet gradually builds up to form a dam. The dam creates a pool of backed up water that gets under the shingles.

Experts say this problem is caused by improper insulation in your roof, or a "warm" roof. The ideal roof is a "cold" one.
