Insulation of your attic is a critical aspect of your roofing system that is ignored by many Milwaukee roofing contractors. Without proper insulation of your attic, heat from your home will get into the attic. While this is an inefficient use of energy, the larger problem is that the wasted heat will melt the snow on your roof, where it will run into your gutters and freeze, creating ice dams which can force water into your roof deck and walls, greatly compromising the structural integrity of your home.
Ideally you want at least 18 and 1/4 inches of r49 or greater insulation in your attic. If you can see your roof joists (which you can in most attics), it means you have 8 inches or less! That is why most homes form icicles in the winter.
