1 Eave Protection and Underlay

Eave protection is used to protect the eave and valley areas of steep sloped roofs from ice dam damage. An ice dam usually forms when the interior heat of the building warms the snow on the roof, causing it to melt and run down to the eaves. Normally, the eaves are overhanging the building and not heated from the inside. This allows the water to freeze and form an ice dam. As the ice dam grows bigger, it forms a barrier, which prevents water from draining. The water backs up behind the dam and gradually forces its way under the shingles (or shakes, tiles, etc.), through the roof deck, and into the structure. The results can range from minor staining to severe water damage to the structural members.

Eave protection membranes are designed to prevent the water from reaching the deck and leaking into the structure. These materials are self-adhering and manufactured with a rubberized asphaltic compound. Properly formulated and installed, these sheets have the potential to provide a longer life and better performance. Slope and climate conditions are considerations for selection; refer to the Standard for further information and guidance.

Not all self-adhered materials have been accepted by the Guarantor as eave protection, and some of the listed products that may be used for eave or valley protection, when installed as a single layer, are too thin to meet the material requirements published in the Standard for Asphalt Shingle Roof Systems. When that is the case, they may be installed in multiple layers, but this should be done in consultation with the manufacturer of the product. Refer to the Standard for multiple layering requirements.

Underlayment is used in the field areas (where eave protection is not required) of the roof to provide a secondary protection beneath the shingles during weather events that force water back up the slope underneath the shingles. Nail Applied materials qualify only as underlayment on roof slopes of more than 1:3 (4/12).
