What’s the Best Way To Protect Your Home from Ice Dams in Bend, OR?


There’s a lot to love about our Central Oregon winters, but ice dams certainly don’t make the list. 


Every year we see firsthand the carnage they can cause, from damaged roofs and gutters to extensive water intrusion. As a full-service painting company, we are often called in to help erase the aftermath, but we’d much rather help our friends and neighbors prevent the issue altogether.


How Do You Prevent Ice Dams?


Sure, you can steam them away (we have the expensive equipment and extensive training needed to do it), but the best tactic is to stop them before they even start.


This is where heat cables come in. 


What Are Roof Heat Cables?


Ice dams form along your home’s roofline as water leaves the warmer surfaces over your attic, and is suddenly exposed to the frigid air over your eaves. We identify these problematic points, and then install premium heat cables that prevent the water from freezing.

What Makes Our Roof Heat Cables Effective?


It all comes down to Serious quality. We skipped the flimsy big box options, heading right to the good stuff:


  • A high quality design with a 16-gauge tinned-copper wire core and a second layer of braided tinned-copper mesh to effectively distribute heat throughout the wires
  • An outer jacket made of UV-resistant, rugged polyolefin for maximum durability
  • A 5-year manufacturer’s warranty
  • Easy installation
  • Conveniently plugs into a standard outlet
  • An energy efficient design that self-regulates its temperature



Did You Know...


We learned over our years of dealing with ice dams that some insurance companies won’t cover a second ice dam event if preventative measures were never put in place after the first. Play it safe! Contact us for consultation, and make sure your home is fully protected.
