Roof Heating Cables

The top of your house is extremely susceptible to damage. Your roofing gets hit with rain, hail, snow, and direct sun. In other words, natural elements (including leaves and tree limbs) can sometimes collect in your gutter year round.

But even then your roof may still be at risk, especially during the winter when snow buildup and unseen ice dams can occur.

Therefore, most homes are woefully under-ventilated.

Home Ventilation and Energy-Efficiency
