Ice and Water Shield for Your Roof

Hello, Middlebury! It’s your friendly neighborhood roofers at Lanes Roofing Inc. here to talk about something that, while not as glamorous as shingles, is the unsung hero of your roof – the ice and water shield. Now, don’t let the name fool you; it’s not medieval armor for your home, but it’s just as protective!

What is Ice and Water Shield?

Picture this: a superhero cape for your roof! Ice and water shield is a self-adhering, waterproof membrane that’s applied directly to the decking of your roof. It’s like a security blanket, but instead of keeping you warm, it keeps your house dry. And in Middlebury, where our weather can be as unpredictable as finding a parking spot downtown during the Fall Festival, you need all the protection you can get!

Why Use Ice and Water Shield?

  1. Superb Leak Protection
    If your roof were a superhero, the ice and water shield would be its trusty sidekick. This material creates a seal that protects your home from water damage caused by ice dams, wind-driven rain, and even those pesky flying squirrels who think your attic is their new Airbnb.
  2. Extra Layer of Security
    It’s like having a security system for your roof. This shield acts as an extra layer of protection between your shingles and your home, ensuring that even if a shingle gets loose (maybe due to a particularly enthusiastic squirrel), your house remains dry and cozy.
  3. Longevity for Your Roof
    Think of it as the secret to eternal youth for your roof. Well, maybe not eternal, but it definitely helps extend the life of your roof, ensuring that you can go longer between replacements. That means more money for your pocket and less time worrying about your roof.
  4. Peace of Mind in Crazy Weather
    In Middlebury, we’ve seen it all: sun, rain, snow, and the occasional “did that just happen?” weather. The ice and water shield is like an all-weather coat for your home. It gives you peace of mind, knowing that no matter what Mother Nature throws at us, your home is protected.
