If you live in Michigan, you’ve probably heard of roof ice dams—the ridge of ice that forms on the edge of your roof, posing a threat to your safety every time you pass by. Ice damming is also hazardous to your roof because, instead of draining, melting snow puddles behind the dam. This can lead to mildew, mold, weakening of the roofing materials, and leaks.
At American Metal Roofs, we are a reliable choice for Greater Michigan ice dam removal. Our roofing contractors have more than 20 years of experience, and we have an innovative tool that allows us to keep your roof ice dam-free—safely and affordably. If your system already has roofing ice damage, then we can also provide you with a professional roof repair.
Safe and Effective Ice Dam Removal and Prevention
There are a few methods available for removing ice dams in Greater Michigan, but the simplest way is to melt vertical channels through the snow and ice along the eave of the roof. This lets the water drain away as harmless ice and snow melt, long before it can puddle and cause problems for your roof and attic.
This is where our Greater Michigan roof snow removal experts come in! At AMR, we utilize a proprietary, in-house system for dealing with ice dams: the Heated Shingle Ice Dam Cutter. This product uses controlled heat to melt a channel through the snow and ice that accumulates on the eave of your roof, allowing water to drain safely and effectively before ice damming occurs. This system is installed onto metal roofs by our trained contractors. Features include:
- Premium-Grade Aluminum
- Patented Self-Regulated Heating Elements
- Automatic Shut-On at 35 Degrees Fahrenheit and Shut-Off at 45 Degrees
- Maximizes Melting While Conserving Energy
- Heating Element Runs Through Gutters for Pleasing Appearance
- Works With All Types of Roofs
