Hey guys, My buddy had ice dams every day last winter, and I kept telling him it was because his attic isn't insulated properly...too much heat is getting out in the attic causing everything to melt and refreeze. I attached a picture of what the insulation looks like in the attic right now. There is no insulation about a foot away from the roof in the attic...which is right where the dams were occuring. His attic does not have vents along the overhang...you cannot stand in the attic and look to the outside. I'm trying to tell him to put insulation up to the where the roof decking starts but not to have it touch the roof decking or he will risk having ice dams because of that... What do you guys say? EDIT: The red in the picture is where the insulation is...horrible drawing, but it gets the point across I think lol..
