Best Method to Prevent Ice Dam Damage to Your Roof

Your home is one of the biggest and most important investments you will ever make in your life. If you live in a location where the winter months bring cold, snow, and ice, it is important that you protect your investment from the harshness of this type of weather just as you would protect yourself and your family. Your roof is an area of the house that must withstand the brunt of all-weather, so it certainly needs some of the toughest, most effective protection available. 


Protection from ice dams and buildup of snow and ice on the roof, eaves, and gutters will ensure the structural integrity of your roof as well as the prevention of damage to the interior of your home and any kind of toxic mold from forming due to the ice and snow leaking into your home. The HotEdge ice melt system is the first and only system to receive UL certification. We have gone through the process to ensure our entire system – not just some of the parts – is certified to ensure you get the highest quality ice dam prevention possible.

Why Prevention of Ice Dams Is Key

Ice dams are potentially dangerous and destructive to your home, your belongings, and anyone who may be walking underneath them. They can cause serious damage to your roof as well as the interior of your home. When the ice melts and the season changes to warmer temperatures, you will see the destruction and be forced to deal with it. Sometimes the roof itself will be damaged, and the interior of your home can also sustain damage structurally or from toxic mold forming from leaks. This damage can potentially be very costly to you as the homeowner, but the repairs may only be temporary once the season changes again. It is important, then, to not simply put a bandage on the problem (by fixing the damage again and again) but rather prevent the damage from recurring. Ice melt systems are able to prevent damage, and our ice melt systems at HotEdge are safe, effective, and energy-efficient.

Additionally, if someone happens to be walking underneath an ice dam or large icicle and the weight of it causes it to fall from the eaves, the injuries can be quite severe. A falling icicle can be fatal in certain circumstances, so it is critical for the safety of you, your family, neighbors, and visitors that you prevent ice dams from forming on your home. At HotEdge, we understand how important it is to keep your family safe and prevent structural damage from occurring due to ice dams. With our UL-certified ice melt systems, you can rest assured that ice dams will no longer be a concern during the winter months.


HotEdge Ice Melt Systems Prevent Ice Dam Damage

To prevent ice dams from forming and having to deal with the damage that they can cause to your roof and the interior of your home, an ice melt system from HotEdge is the way to go. They work using a single heat trace cable attached to the edges of your roof. The heat which runs through this cable sufficiently heats the roof in its most vulnerable places to prevent any ice from building up and forming into the dreaded and dangerous ice dams.
