Let Us Help You Prevent Ice Dams in Your Gutters

Friday, March 6th, 2015

To call this winter brutal in terms of snowfall would be a bit of an understatement. For those of us who have been in the Boston area for some time, we can only liken it to the blizzard we were pummeled by way back in ’78. While you may be enjoying a respite from the snowfall as we move slowly towards the spring season, it is important that you keep in mind the fact that all of this snow, including that on your roof, is going to melt.

When snow melts off of your roof, it can fill your gutters with water which then refreezes when the temperature drops back down. This can result in ice dams, which can lead to serious problems with your home, including roof leaks and damaged gutters. FB Electrical Services can help you to avoid issues with ice dams in Boston and the surrounding areas.

With the help of electrical resistance heating, you can melt the ice that would otherwise build up in your gutters, making it impossible for water to drain appropriately. Electrical coils can be installed beneath the roof and dip into your gutters in intervals, allowing for the heat from the coils to thoroughly melt any ice that builds up therein. When you melt this ice in the gutters, as well as that built up in a layer upon your roof, you can divert the water away from your home just as intended via your drainage system. This certainly beats having that water dripping into your home, damaging your roof and ceilings.

Like any other sort of electrical installation service, it is vital that your electrical coils are professionally installed in order to ensure that they melt ice effectively, protecting your roof and your gutters, and that they function safely. This is certain to be the case when you hire our electricians to do the job.

For more information about how you can resolve problems with ice dams in Boston, just give FB Electrical Services a call. We are more than happy to provide you with the answers you seek.

Invest in the protection of your home by allowing us to install the electrical coils necessary to prevent ice damming on your property.
