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

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.
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. Interested in learning more?
