These heated metal roof shingles are too hot for ice dams to handle. 

When something as seemingly innocent as icicles threaten to damage your roof, it is better to prevent ice dams from forming than to try and mitigate the issue. That’s why heated metal roof shingles are the perfect solution to stopping ice dams cold (well, hot actually). They melt snow and ice before it gets the chance to build up! 

Heated roof shingles are designed to go over metal and asphalt shingles. They attach to the eave edge and tuck under the shingle at the top, so there are no roof penetrations. It is an energy-saving, automatic operation that is 99% efficient. And with its solid-state system, there are no moving parts – that means no maintenance for you!
