Roof De-icing and Gutter Trace Systems

Warmzone® offers a variety of industry-leading roof heating and gutter heat trace solutions to enhance safety and protect residential and commercial structures from snow and ice damage. The roof de-icing systems range from comprehensive, fully automated roof and gutter heating to simple constant wattage heat cable that can be triggered manually to eliminate snow and ice from trouble spots on roofs. Warmzone's proven roof heating solutions ensure that you'll find the system that is best suited for your specific roof de-icing needs.

The most popular and effective roof heating solutions include the use of self-regulating heat cable or the low-voltage RoofHeat™ STEP® system. To keep roof eaves, valleys, gutters and downspouts free of snow and ice, these systems can also be combined. Self-regulating heat cable can be routed through gutters and downspouts, as well as installed in a zigzag pattern along the roof eaves. This provides channels for runoff, thereby helping to prevent ice dams from forming. The popular low-voltage roof heating system utilizes thin polymer heating elements that can be installed discreetly under roof shingles (or metal roofs) to effectively prevent buildup of snow and ice. This advanced roof de-icing system has proven effective in homes and businesses throughout the country.

When it comes to winter roof damage, the most common culprit that not only can damage your roof, but lead to costly water damage inside the home, is the ice dam. These ridges of ice tend to form along the roof eaves as runoff (caused by attic heat melting snow on the roof) trickles down the roof where it reaches the colder eaves and refreezes. Eventually, a ridge of ice forms, causing pools of water to back up behind the ice. During the days and nights, it repeatedly freezes and thaws. Water from these pools can seep into the tiniest cracks and imperfections in the roof, and when it refreezes and expands it can damage the roof over time. The ideal solution is to install low-voltage RoofHeat STEP under the shingles (or metal) to keep the entire roof edge free of snow and ice. However, runs of self-regulating heat cable can also be installed to provide channels for the runoff, allowing it to reach the roof gutters and downspouts.

Warmzone roof de-icing and gutter snowmelt systems have been in use for decades to prevent hazardous ice dams and icicles from forming on roofs. Over the years, Warmzone has refined and developed these proven de-icing systems. The systems are easy to customize in order to best meet your unique roof heating demands. Roof eaves can also be cleared of snow and ice using Warmzone's attractive RoofHeat Panels. These systems utilize self-regulating heat cable that is channeled through durable aluminum panels for maximum heat transfer (available in a variety of colors).

Homeowners are typically most concerned about ice dams. A ridge of ice forms at the edge or valley of a roof and prevents the melting snow behind it from draining properly. The water backs up behind the dam where it freezes and melts again. Eventually water can seep through a compromised part of the roof, causing damage to ceilings, walls, floors and eventually result in mold and mildew growth.

Warmzone Gutter and Heat Trace Cable

The most effective snow and ice melting solution for roof gutters and downspouts is Warmzone's self-regulating gutter heating cable. The durable heat cable features advanced technology that results in safe, effective, energy-efficient operation. The self-regulating feature of the cable consists of an irradiated conductive core that increases the heat output as the temperature falls and decreases the output when the temperature rises, resulting in energy-efficient operation. The heating element also features top materials and workmanship for unmatched durability.

The roof gutter heating cable features a 100-percent tinned copper braid, fluoropolymer outer jacket and a continuous metal ground band. The roof heating cable is UL recognized under the Appliance Wire Classification (file E 76498) and meets the requirements of Section 426 of the National Electric Code (NEC).

The certifications and requirements achieved by the roof heating cable ensure top performance and rugged durability during the most extreme winter weather. The snow melting cable also features a 10-year manufacturer warranty.
