In cold climate zones where ice dams are common, both shake and shingle roofs should have an ice barrier installed as eave protection along the lower roof edge. Even if shakes or shingles are installed on spaced sheathing, the roof deck beneath the ice barrier should be solid sheathing. Shakes and shingles have very different requirements regarding the installation of a water-resistant membrane in the field. Both the CSSB and the IRC recommend that shingles in the main portion of the roof have no underlayment installed due to concerns about moisture, especially condensation.
