Tips on Reducing Ice Dams

By February 15, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Ice dams form due to heat in the attic that causes snow on top of the roof to melt and refreeze at the roof’s eaves. Another common contributor to ice damming is clogged gutters. Debris that clogs your gutter system causes water to stagnate and overflow, forming more ice that allows water to back up along the edge of the roof.

Ice dams can lead to leaks that can ruin your interior. Ice dams can also cause icicles to form on your gutter system, which may collapse due to the weight of the icicles. Let Gutter Helmet Systems Washington share some tips with you for reducing ice dams.

We’ll inspect your roofing to find the source of your gutter problems. Once we finish inspecting your roof and gutter in Tukwila, Washington, we will give you a report of its condition.

Install Gutter Helmet®
We provide gutter covers that will prevent water from forming into ice dams. They come with ribbed surfaces that let water flow naturally into a small slit while preventing debris from piling up. This will keep your gutters from clogging and ice from building up. They also feature a special finish that prevents staining, fading, chalking and acid rain, making it a low-maintenance option. With these features, you can be at ease knowing that you never have to worry about cleaning your gutters again.

Install Helmet Heat®
We can complement our gutter protection systems with an ice reduction system to prevent ice from forming ice dams. Helmet Heat® is a heating cable with a thermoplastic elastomer or TPE over jacket. This cable conductive core increases the heat it generates as temperature falls and decreases its output when temperature rises. Because of this feature, it’s safe, efficient and you do not need to monitor it.
