I have the same situation here on a home I'm building for myself. The foam was given a coat of Quickrete coating. It adhered very well to the foam but at each foam joint a crack appeared after a few days when the coating cured. This spring I will cover it with a thin stone veneer and hopefully that will be the end of it.
I had Ice dam problems that had rivers running down exterior walls until I put a strip of clad aluminum about 4 ft. wide all along the eave. The first bit of sun that comes out after a snowfall and the snow slides off the roof leaving a clean edge. Best thing I ever did. Ridge vents that get buried won't work so install a couple of vertical vents and all will be well.
