Total Roof Deicing: Pairing Under Roof Systems with Gutter Tape

A roof deicing system in actionMuch has been written about Ice Dams on our blog. Causes, symptoms, preventative measures, and more have been detailed previously. While there are many things you can do to combat the buildup of ice and snow on the roof of your home or business, there is only one total solution.

Warmquest is proud to carry the ONLY roof deicing products tested and listed to UL standards for installation beneath the roof surface. Our ZMesh and Invizimelt under roof deicing systems provide a heat to virtually any portion of your roof. Rather than loose cable systems strewn over the top of the roof, ZMesh and Invizimelt spread heat evenly over entire portions of your roof. This gives you complete deicing, removing snow and ice from the entire heated area.

With Invizimelt or ZMesh you can heat any trouble spot on your roof. Eaves, valleys, flat roofs, crickets, dormers and any other area where snow and ice accumulates can be kept completely free of snow and ice.

Now that your roof is clear, complete the system by pairing it with industrial grade GutterMelt for the gutters and downspouts. This self-regulating cable keeps melting snow and ice flowing all the way to the ground.

GutterMelt can be paired with ZMesh and/or Invizimelt to form a comprehensive system. Combined with a snow sensor and a gutter sensor, the system can be activated when snow first falls and set to run until the water has flowed off the roof and out of the gutters. This combination is extremely effective for thoroughly eliminating ice and snow problems from your roof.

When you want to do more than manage or remove ice dams. Talk to the Warmquest team about how to prevent them completely!

When is it Too Cold to Install Radiant Heat?

cold weather installAs winter approaches it is time to finish up most construction and renovation. However if you are thinking about adding radiant heat, whether for snow melting, floor warming, or roof deicing, you may have time yet.

Mother nature can limit installation of Warmquest’s products, but it’s not as bad as you might think. Read on to learn what can be installed in the cold of winter.

Heated Floors and Spaces
Weather won’t halt the installation of these interior systems. Warm up your toes and enjoy the luxury of radiant heat by installing a system at any time!

Snow Melting Systems
If that first snowstorm of the season is what it takes to remind you how much you hate shoveling, then you are in luck. Snow melting systems can generally be installed in cold weather. Plan for a nice dry day and get that heat in! You would want to check with your concrete or asphalt contractor on any limitations for pouring new surfaces. Retrofit installs only need to be warm enough for the sealant to cure. Our team can advise on proper conditions for a retrofit installation.

Roof Deicing
Heated roof systems is one application you might have to wait till spring for. Pulling your roof off in the middle of winter to install ZMesh or Invizimelt may not be an option. However if Ice Dams have got you beat, our GutterMelt can be installed all winter long. GutterMelt may not provide the comprehensive solution of an under roof system, but it is very effective at controlling ice dams and providing a path off the roof for melting snow and ice.

Don’t let the cold stop you from adding radiant heat. To get project specific recommendations and guidance, call one of our experts at 877-877-4724.
