Winter is upon us, and you know what that means—ice! This icy season means icicles, slips, falls, bruised tailbones, and sometimes worse damage. Ice can not only be tricky to walk on, but it can also cause real damage to your roof, gutters, and even your home. You can avoid ice from forming in the first place when you install an ice melting system on your roof. This system simple to install system uses a heating cable to keep your roof the right temperature through cold weather to avoid ice from forming. This will help you to avoid icicles, ice dams, and icy patches on your property.
Roof and Gutter Protection
When you de-ice your roof, it can protect the structural integrity of your roof and your gutters. Rain gutters can easier get clogged and flooded with snowmelt. When that snowmelt freezes again it will expand and damage your gutters. Installing an ice melting system may save you from needing to replace your gutters.
Ice build on your roof can cause shingles to lift up and cracks, which can lead to structural damage and even flooding in your home. It’s important to not allow ice to dam on your roof. Depending on where you live, your home may be in more danger of this.
Safer Walkways and Driveways
Much of the ice that ends up on our sidewalks, porches, and driveways drips from our roof. Icy patches on your property pose a threat to you and anyone visiting—leaving you responsible for any possible injury. With icy condition on your walkways, you are prone to slips and falls. Not all ice is so visible, pathways may look deceptively clear. Spreading salt may help but it doesn’t always do the trick. Wouldn’t it be nice to avoid the ice all together? Minimize the ice patches with an ice melting system.
Icy driveways are another danger. These driveways pose a threat to drivers and walkers alike. Whether you’re walking or driving on your driveway, a clear path is definitely preferred. Avoid the threats ice poses by avoiding ice.
Though they are beautiful to behold, icicles are a safety risk. They can fall and penetrate innocent bystanders, drip cold water on passersby, or drip onto the ground below creating ice patches. Crashing ice from above with sharp edges can be a very dangerous thing. But it can also be avoided with an ice melting system.
