Many factors contribute to the cost of a Roof and Gutter Ice Melting System. Products used, design considerations, electrical requirements, and areas to be protected - all influence the final cost of a system. With the internet it is possible to find just about any information we want. Is it reasonable, then, for a consumer to be able to find out what it would cost to install a roof and gutter ice melting system on their home while sitting at their computer. Probably not. But, with some effort, a reasonable estimation could be obtained.
Take some pictures of the affected area. Winter pictures of the ice dams in progress are also helpful. Next, a measured diagram will be useful for determining the amount of materials necessary. Other information to be included would be available outlets and circuit breaker panel make and model. With this information in hand, VT Ice Dam Solutions will be able to provide you with a 'ballpark' estimate of costs for installation. For the DIY do-it-yourselfer, we will also be able to provide you with a material list and cost.
