Leak Barriers - StormGuard

StormGuard® Film-Surfaced Leak Barrier

Help Protect Your Home From Wind-Driven Rain And Damaging Ice Dams With A Leak Barrier.

A Quality Leak Barrier Will:

Create a seal that helps keep water out at the most vulnerable areas of your shingle or metal roof (at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, around chimneys, etc.).

StormGuard® Leak Barrier will:

  • Help protect your home from costly wall and ceiling staining

  • Help prevent leaks due to water damming in your gutters, wind-driven rain, and, in the North, damaging ice dams

Good Housekeeping

(Applicable in the U.S. only)

Help Protect Your Home

  • The Codes Are Clear...
    North Area Protection against ice dams is required* at eaves wherever the January average temperature is 25°F (-4°C) or lower or where there is a possibility of ice forming in the eaves - i.e., the area labeled "North." †

  • But Be Prepared...
    Ice dams can still occur in areas where the average temperature is above 25°F (-4°C).

  • Also Remember...
    In Southern climates, a leak barrier helps provide protection against wind-driven rain.

* Check local building codes for requirements in your area.
† Source: International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC)
