How Does Heat Tape Work?

By Horch Roofing | Feb 07, 2019

Ice dams are a high-risk situation for rooftops.

When water gets into cracks and crevices in the roof or in gutters, and then freezes, it can cause ice to form in those areas. As the ice forms, it expands the cracks, creating the risk for serious structural damage. Heat tape may be an excellent solution to this. This type of product, sometimes referred to as gutter heat tape or a roof heat cable, can warm these surfaces just enough to prevent ice from forming. Explore the pros and cons of heat tape.
