One of the best things to protect your home against leaks and water damage is an ice and water shield. These are perfect for homes that are in climates that are exposed to ice dams and wind-driven rain. This is applied before the roof is installed and it goes under the shingles. The ice and water shield works to hold the shingles in place by forming a seal around the nail; ultimately, it doesn’t let water into your roof or home.
Ice and water shields are sometimes called “weather guard” or “weather shield,” and different roofing companies use them differently. However, a weather shield should be used for all-over roof protection against any sort of wetness. Sometimes, roofing companies may use it around vents and chimneys for extra protection against leaks and water damage.
Many roofers will not use ice and water shields in an effort to cut costs, but Robbins Roofing believes that the added bonus of an ice and water shield can be well worth it. An ice and water shield is your best protection from leaks around your penetration and high water-traffic areas. Our roofs in Oklahoma are subject to hazardous weather conditions, and we recommend that all of our clients have an ice and water shield installed on their home.
