Roof and Gutter Deicing | Keep your Roof and Gutters Ice Free



Roof and Gutter Deicing

Question: After the recent snowstorms, I noticed a large ice patch that formed over my gutter and downspout. It grew so large and heavy that it was pulling the gutter off the roof. I was afraid of the damage to my roof or worse, that it would fall on someone below. Long story short, I climbed our rickety ladder and with much physical labor and fear for my safety I manually removed it myself. I don’t EVER want to do that again! Is there a safer, easier way to keep ice build-up off my roof? How do I keep my gutters ice free? Should I remove the snow from my roof?

Answer: It sounds like you have an ice dam issue, a common occurrence in colder climates. While manually removing them as they grow is an option, your best solution is prevention by having roof and gutter deicing cables installed by a qualified electrician.
