Why is there ICE in my Attic and where did it come from?
ICE DAMS ARE CREATED WHEN THE HOT MOIST AIR RISES FROM THE INTERIOR OF THE BUILDING.
As the Hot Moist Air Rises into the Attic and meets the Roof Framing System. Condensation Occurs on the Cold Framing Members consisting of: Rafters, Roof Trusses, Roof Decking
As the Condensation Cools the Moisture in the Air Freezes on the Roof System.
