After snowstorms, you may start noticing a large band of ice forming on the edge of your roof. The ice may prevent water from draining off, loosen the gutters, and end up pulling the roof off entirely. This ice build-up is known as an ice dam.
The moisture entering your home from the ice dam can also lead to mold and mildew growth. These can ultimately pose a health hazard in your home. Therefore, it’s essential to learn how to prevent and remove ice dams from your roof. One of the best techniques for preventing ice dam formation is using HotEdge roofing systems.
What Is HotEdge and How Does it Work?
HotEdge is a technology that provides solutions to the formation of ice dams. The solution entails using snap-on heating tiles with downspouts; heated gutters may also help create a customized ice melt solution.

- They require no modifications to the existing roofing structures
