Protecting Downspouts and Drains

by Matt Roberts

When spring arrives and the snow starts to melt many people realize that they have left their gutters and downspouts unprotected. This leaves them to overflow and can result in a slipping hazard and/or flooding.  

It is important to give your downspouts and other drains the attention they deserve. Heat-Line has many specialized products that can help you create a melt water pathway through your downspouts and drains, giving the water the needed path to migrate away from your building. We provide heating cables and heat trace systems that are certified to be submersed inside gravity drains, gutters and downspouts. 

Listen to February's video blog and learn directly from a Heat-Line specialist about how important it is to ensure you protect your gutters and downspouts.
