How To Measure and Prepare for a Roof De-Icing Heating Cable Installation

How To Measure and Prepare for a Roof De-Icing Heating Cable Installation


As summer ends and the fall season begins, Heat-Line receives many inquiries regarding roof de-icing. Heat-Line not only manufactures freeze protection solutions for most pipe applications, but we also offer innovative and high end solutions for roof de-icing applications. What is important to understand regarding roof de-icing is that every roof is different. Icing issues on roofs are mostly related to inadequate ventilation. This is not an exact science and many different installation methods can be used. The idea of roof de-icing is to ensure that a meltwater path is provided allowing the water to effectively distribute away from the roof. Serpentine or sometimes referred to as a “zig-zag” pattern is a conventional heating cable layout along the leading edge of the roof. A serpentine pattern is very effective and is one of the simplest installation methods. Learn from one of our technicians on exactly what you need to measure and check prior to ordering and installing a Heat-Line roof de-icing heating cable system.
