When it comes to snow and ice buildup, we often think of the snow and ice on the ground. After all, snow and ice buildup on the ground is the most common hazard we face during the winter months. However, there is another location where ice and snow buildup occurs that can cause potential problems for your household if left untreated—the roof.
Untreated snow and ice buildup on the roof can cause ice dams to form in the gutters, dangerous icicles that may fall at any moment, and water damage that result in mold growth. All of these problems become difficult and costly to repair over time; most removal methods require manual labour or the use of chemicals for complete elimination of the problem. Due to the precarious nature of the roof, it is necessary for most homeowners to hire professionals to undertake the snow removal process; however, this is often a difficult, time–consuming and ultimately temporary process that needs to be repeated every winter.
There is a better way. Using Heavenly Heat’s de–icing cables will eliminate the problem at its core by getting rid of any and all snow buildup through the simple application of heat, melting any snow or ice that might cause problems for the roof of your home.
Read on below for the immense benefits of roof de–icing cables, and its numerous advantages when compared to other roof de–icing alternatives.

Roof De-icing Cable Installation
Roof de-icing cables are installed in drain path to melt ice and snow allowing clear drainage from the roof through to the gutter and downspout. Can also be installed on the roof edges on top of the shingles. Roof de-icing cables radiate heat to melt the surrounding snow and ice. It operates automatically to trigger the system on when it senses precipitation and freezing temperatures.
