Preventing ice damming
Hey all again. Painfully slow progress on my home reno. I’m in Northern Ohio in zone 5. I’ve foam sealed in vent baffles and have a thick butyl membrane under my new standing seam metal roof but like a lot of houses around here from the 60s and 70s I have a very low sloped roof. At some points it seems to only be a distance a maybe 3 inches between the top plate and the vent baffle. I wanted to just blow in cellulose or but rockwool batts in (less likely due to difficulty) but would you guys suggest I use a froth pak kit to spray foam all of those tight spaces and just hope for the best? I know that’s what it says would be my best option at this point according to articles on here but just wanted to see if anyone has had a similar experience in zone 5 and if the cellulose and air sealing will suffice.
