Black Roofing & Waterproofing can design and specify an electrical heat tracing system to prevent ice dams from forming on your roof and gutters of residential homes and commercial buildings.
Heat trace or snow melt applications help to prevent physical damage to the building and eliminate safety hazards such as ice falling unexpectedly below. Black Roofing & Waterproofing can design a heat tracing system on any flat roof, sloped roof, shingled roof, membrane roof or a standing seam roof.
Heat Cable is a great way to prevent ice damming and is installed throughout the gutters, downspouts and roof system.
Specific ways Heat Cable can be installed:
- Laying the heat trace cables directly in gutters and downpipes
- A traditional zigzag pattern can be installed on the edge of the roof line
- Newer technology is inserting heat cable into metal panels installed on the roof or under the shingles of a roof
