Builder Liable for Ice Dam damages?


Yes but I've seen many times the shield not up 24"

N.Y.S. Code
RR905.2.7.1 Ice protection. In areas where the average daily
temperature in January is 25F (-4C) or less or when Table RR301.2(1)
criteria so designates, an ice barrier that consists of a least
two layers of underlayment cemented together or of a self-adhering
polymer modified bitumen sheet, shall be used in lieu of normal
underlayment and extend from the eave's edge to a point at least 24
inches (610 mm) inside the exterior wall line of the building.

Contact the local building department for their acceptable standards, review SB800 (California State Bill 800) for your rights BEFORE you speak to a lawyer, gain a little knowledge and see if you have recourse.
