Ice Dam Prevention

Ice Dams damage the roofing, roof decking and overhangs. The old roof had aluminum flashing along the eve walls to prevent leaks.

A properly installed new Shingled Roof with Ice & Water Shield combined with the correct soffit and roof ventilation, and adequate insulation can help stop Ice Dams from forming and damaging your

Old Chimney Flashing Before Work Starts

Many Chimneys I inspect have been coated with roofing tar several times. It is not a permanent solution. It will last until the tar dries out, and then leak again.



New Chimney Flashing
Job Done

Jarvis Builders uses a 3 Step Process to properly flash your chimney to last the life of your new shingles.

  1. First when we "Dry In" the roof decking we install Ice & Water Shield around the chimney and up along the base 3."

  2. Second as we shingle the roof we use Aluminum Flashings to Step Flash the chimney to the new shingles.

  3. Third, we saw cut the chimney 3/4" deep, and install a Custom Made Aluminum Counter Flash
    that is bent into the saw cut and covers the Step Flashing. This is a Permanent Solution.
