We just put a new roof on late summer. Ice and water shield along the edges.
I have a leak near the back edge of the roof over my kitchen. The water is sitting on top of the VB
and dripping through a light fixture into my kitchen sink (how convenient). It has soaked the underside of the roof sheeting and one of the truss members about 3-4 feet away from the edge of the roof.
I know it's ice damming that's causing the issue since this part of the roof is poorly designed with no overhang. See a cross-sectional drawing below. I know I basically need better insulation and ventillation of this area to prevent ice damming but I have no idea how water got through the ice & water shield. We have had a lot of snow this year but I have raked it off down to the ice over this area a couple days ago before the leak started.
I have two questions about this:
1) What do I do to stop the leak now and get me though until the spring? Do i need to melt the ice over this area with a heated strip and maybe temporarily pile up some more of the blown-in fiberglass to this area?
2) How do I prevent heat from gathering in this area? There is no way to put inlet soffit vents here and the bulkhead is full of blown-in insulation. Would spray foam in the bulkhead help this and maybe some sort of fan up there to keep the air in this area circulating?
Thanks for any help
