Comments

   Section 1507.2.8.2 Ice dam membrane.  Delete “In areas where there has been a history” and replace with “Ice dam protection is required on all pitched roofs and where there is a possibility…”

   Eliminates ambiguity in code language.  Code requires ice barrier protection in areas where there is a history of ice forming along eaves causing backup.  History is subjective.  This will require the use of ice barrier on all applications.
