'Every winter, we get damage to our roof. How do we prevent that from happening?'
Preventing roof damage during the winter is crucial to the maintenance of your building. Clogged or damaged gutters can lead to ice dams, causing significant damage to your roof. Ice dams form when snow on your roof melts and flows into your gutters, which may be clogged or damaged, preventing proper water flow. The water then freezes, creating a dam that can force water under your roof shingles, resulting in leaks and water damage. Regular maintenance and cleaning of gutters can prevent this from happening. Proper insulation and ventilation of your attic can also prevent heat from escaping and contributing to ice dam formation.
Our snow and ice dam prevention cable, also called a heat cable, is an effective solution to prevent ice and snow accumulation. We install these cables on your roof’s edges and gutters to melt any snow or ice before it can accumulate and form a dam. Our experts will evaluate your building’s needs and provide a solution that works best for you. We use high-quality materials and provide expert installation to ensure that your cables will work effectively for many winter seasons to come.

Several Signs May Indicate Ice Dams
1. Icicles along the roof’s edge or behind the gutter
2. Ice builds up on top of gutters or the lower edge of the roof.
3. Ice emanating from your soffit vents or through the soffit itself
4. Visible ice or water on your home’s siding
5. Water or ice inside or around a window frame.
It is essential to recognize an ice dam on your home or business and then monitor the spaces directly under your roof for signs of water intrusion.
Installing heat cables helps prevent your gutters from freezing over, breaking off, and damaging your roof. The heat wires melt the snow and ice, allowing water to flow into clean gutters as intended. Without a proper channel, the water will back up and leak into your house, leading to more damage and money.
If ice dams build up, ice cycles can form and cause damage to your roof and gutters or even cause injury to someone.
Ice dams can cause damage to your roof, and water will find its way into your house. As the moisture increases, a breeding ground for mold will be created, which can lead to various health issues for you and your family.
