WOOD SHAKE/ CEDAR SHINGLE ROOFS
On a wood shake roof it is typically required that the last 4 to 5 rows of existing wood shake be removed to install HotShingle. On all other roof shingles it is NOT required to remove existing shingles. Once installed, the HotShake will prevent ice dam and icicle formations utilizing a single heat trace cable. We are able to do this because all HotEdge designs rely on direct heat transfer.
Installing HotShakePRO on this mountain home adjacent to a world-class ski resort. HotShakePRO is a UL Listed system for safety and compliance.
This photo shows HotShinglePRO3X performing. Please know, for a more finished or custom look, HotEdge manufactures a HotCap that is installed on corners to conceal commercial grade self-regulating heating cable as it transitions from 1X to 2X, etc. Heat cable can be seen in this photo because customer did not have a need to conceal heating cable between transitions.
UL Listed HotShingleLOK can be seen here in this photo preforming in a high snow load region. A single run of commercial grade self-regulating heating cable is able to achieve this level of melt back to do a patented raceway design housing the heating cable.
Copper HotShinglePRO is being installed on this mountain home. Because copper is a softer metal than steel and aluminum versions of the same product, you can notice a small level of “oil canning”. Although this will not impact system performance towards eliminating ice dam and icicle development, it is a characteristic of the copper appearance which we need to disclose.
HotShingleLOK2X is shown in this photo performing. Although it appears that a small ice dam has developed, if examine closely, a pathway for snow melt water exists between the ice and asphalt shingle for snow melt water to safely reach the gutter system. It should also be understood that HotEdge systems are able to melt further up from a roof edge than any other market alternative available. So if the belief is that ice can develop above a HotEdge system (since this photo shows it), then the same is true to a greater extent (since HotEdge systems are able to melt back further) for all other market alternatives
In this photo, HotFlashing and HotShinglePRO are shown performing on a commercial property. It was important that a system be UL Listed for safety and compliance.
