Weather is your roof's archenemy, especially Indiana's winter weather. Heavy snow and layered ice can quickly break down your roof's defenses. A quality roof should be able to support 20 pounds per square foot. Ten to 12 inches of snow is equal to five pounds per square foot, so your roof should be able to withstand less than four feet of snow without being in danger of collapsing. But if you live in an area with consistent heavy snowfalls, the constant weight can put undue stress on your home, causing shingles and flashing to show early signs of wear and tear.
The cost of installing a ice melt system in your house will vary. Some of the factors are the type of system, the quality, the area to cover, etc. however the cost might be a little above $1,000. Installing these systems can offer the following benefits:
- Extend the Life of Your Roof
- Protect Your Home from Water Damage
- Protect People from Falling Ice and Snow
