Ice Protection Systems

ice-prevention-2Ice Protection Systems and how they Benefit your homes.

As winter months are approaching us everyone is busy cleaning their yards and getting ready to settle in for the season.  Soon snow and ice will be present on every roof as well as in your gutter systems.  Everyone can prevent damage to their gutter system by taking the time to properly prepare their custom homes in Woodbury MN for winter.

 

Cleaning the gutters out before freezing temperatures arise ice-prevention-3will help to prevent your system from failing this winter.  As gutter systems are great for keeping the water away from your foundation in the warmer months, they can’t control the temperatures and as the water starts to freeze into your gutter system it would be best if they were properly cleaned to prevent any ice dams or clogs.

 

Assuring your gutters are cleaned and re-sealed before winter can benefit the system from creating bigger problems as large icicles, ice dams, cracking seals and expanding and contracting with the cooler temperatures.

As most homeowners would not like to worry about any issues this winter it may be a good thing to have your local contractor look over the system to make sure all brackets are secure, down spouts are cleared away for any obstructions, and to assure the gutter system is slopping correctly for water to properly drain.

 

There are also many systems tice-prevention-1hat can help keep your roof and gutters cleared from ice and snow dams.  Such as Heat Trace Cables, Snow Bars for metal roofs as well as Snow Blocks.  These are all products that can be added as an addition to your current gutter system.

 

Many heat trace systems can also come with a built in thermostat that can be controlled to turn on at freezing temperatures.  This system can vary in pricing and styles but also very beneficial during winter months.

TYPES OF SEAMLESS GUTTERS MADE

Seamless gutters can be crafted and made on site at your home in Prescott WI! Most of the gutters that we carry are made out of aluminum, vinyl, galvanized steel, stainless steel and copper.

Since there are no seams, there isn’t any leaks. This is why they are the most popular type of gutter today. The only seams within the entire seamless gutter system are at the inside and outside corners. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous which makes them both durable and aesthetically more appealing.

SnapLock Seamless Gutter System

SnapLock Gutter System

Current Maximum Load/ Weight Capacity is as follows:

1-Gallon of Water Weighs 8.3 Ibs.

5″ Gutters – .6234 gal. per ft. = 5.21Ibs. per foot of gutter
6″ Gutters – .92 gal. per ft. = 7.6 lbs. per running ft. of gutter.

Product Testing Inc. performed an independent test of the SnapLock Gutter System® and found that the load capacity when using the SnapLock Gutter System® was 11.3 times or 1130% greater than that of 5″ gutters at full capacity and 7.6 times or 760% greater than that of 6″ gutters at full capacity. These tests prove that the SnapLock system will not only handle the weight of a gutter full of water, but it can also take on heavy gutter loads caused by ice and snow.

SnapLock Gutter System

The SnapLock Gutter System® eliminates failures due to water damage typically associated with conventional gutter installations. Snap Lock’s innovative “No-hole” technology uses no spikes or nails for attachment to your roofline. Round Gutter SystemPICThere is not need to penetrate the front or back of the gutter. The result is a watertight mating of the gutter at the edge of your roof – a seal that prevents seepage, rust, rot and mold. Further, because the integrity of your gutter channel is not riddled with holes, the SnapLock Gutter
System dramatically outlasts traditional rain gutters while protecting your home against the hazards associated with bacterial mold and fungus.

If it’s not SnapLock, It’s Not Permanent
Traditional rain gutters have changed little during the past 100 years. Today, their designs employ spikes, screws, or nails for attachment to your home, just as they did at the turn of the century when Teddy Roosevelt was President. And while this outmoded gutter technology offers satisfactory benefits in the short-term, results over many seasons remain the same: Structural failure because of rot, mold and gutter separation.

Don’t Let your Gutters turn out like this!

How Ice Dams Are Created

How-Ice-Dams-Forms-UT

Ice Dam Formation

 

This picture depicts how Ice Dams are created due to Heat Loss from your roof.

Ice dams form when melting snow on a roof runs off and refreezes at the edge of a roof. This condition occurs when  the snow is melted by a warm roof, creating water running between the snow and the warm roof surface, then freezing and turning to ice when it gets past the exterior wall and hits a cold unheated roof edge or gutter. As the bottom of the snow pack continues  to melt, water continues to flow down the roof surface until it hits  the ice, thereby creating a larger and larger ice  dam.

 

How to prevent Ice Dams from Forming

Most people find that ice dams are created by the gutter system. This is false, Ice dams are created by heat loss from the roof, poor ventilation from soffit and fascia, and not maintaining a clean roof from snow build up.

With a professionally installed Seamless Gutter System with or without LeafLock Gutter Protection Heat Trace is essential for ice prevention and ice dams.
