Roof snow system
I built my home with a non vented attic & soffits. We used a combination of open and thermal closed cell insulation to meet code requirements. I also installed a Heat exchange Air Exchanger to regulate the air/moisture in our home.. I live in Colorado at 9,200 feet. Ice dams are formed when the snow melts from heat reaching the roof and then freezes when it hits the unheated eaves. Will this happen with the metal non vented roof system I put in? I am leaning towards installing snow bars and putting heat tape in the gutters and downspouts. I need help deciding what snow/ice systems would be best for me.
