That’s because ice backup caused by melting snow exposed the flashing point – allowing water to penetrate the rafter tails, insulation, fascia and soffits. Because of concerns regarding mold, however, many building code writers in the rest of the country – especially the south – have also adopted the drip edge requirement.

Flashing Another area of your roof that’s vulnerable to leakage is the line where the roof and sidewall abut. While not as vulnerable as the valley this area, too, calls for added protection. Step flashing provides a layer of protection between the wall’s siding or brick and the roof’s sheeting – preventing the water from flowing back into the wall where it can cause mold or wood rot. Quality Edge Step Flashing is available in many sizes, all of which are available in colors that match the Drip Edge, W-Valley and Gutter Protection. Ridge Vent For a long-lasting roof, balanced attic ventilation is essential. Continuous ridge vents ventilate your attic from end to end. Cool, dry air that is drawn in at the soffit replaces the hot, moist air that rises to the ridge and leaves through the ridge vents.
