Understanding Ice Dam Prevention

An ice dam is the buildup of ice on the sloped roofs atop heated buildings that prevent a path for wastewater from reaching the gutters. This accumulation results from melting snow under a snowpack shifting to the eaves of your roof and freezing there. This impedes the drainage of meltwater and causes heavy, dangerous accumulations in your home or business. An ice dam’s weight can cause minor leaks or significant damage, so you should rely on the experts at Kapital Electric for protection.

Our Team Installs Heat Panels for Your Roof

We can install heat panels to safeguard against damage to your roof, gutters, and property. Our team of specialists will insert a heated cable into an integrated channel that melts away ice and snow and prevents clogs. We will take care of all the wiring and technical work. Among the benefits of our heat panels is their innovative technology. Rather than merely sensing temperature, they also sense moisture, meaning they will only be in use when both are present. Or you can activate them with a simple app on your smartphone.

We Utilize Reliable Icearmour™ Equipment

Kapital Electric uses heat panels from IceArmour™. The industry leader provides reliable equipment that comes with an exclusive 10-year warranty to give you peace of mind.
