Roof and gutter heating

Design process

Roof and gutter heating

In any case, do not ignore the features of your roof, make a plan, do not forget about warm areas, cold edges, spillway zones, and so on. Due to incorrect design, ice forms on some parts of the roofs, and this is not the most pleasant guest.

Fixing the heating cable

Movable wire that hangs on the mounting tape, holes in the roof for fasteners, the use of tape for installing Underfloor heating on the roof, and so on. Pay attention to the correct installation of the heating cable.

Also, do not attach the heating cable to the cable, as this may cause the wire to break due to temperature surges or the weight of ice.

Do not connect heating cables where they are absolutely not needed. Waste of time and money!
