Default Roof leaks - Ice Damming


I would like to seek some advice here if possible. This winter, my house experienced ice damming and water damage through the roof. I can't believe it because it's a 2 years old house.

Luckily, I have insurance covering the interior. But I am wondering what I should do I prevent it from happening again. One thing I noticed is that there is no ice and water shield installed on the roof.

Is ice and water shield required by the building code or do we have to do it afterwards through 3rd party contractor? I am surprised that builder didn't install any to prevent ice damming
