Some may worry about the initial cost of heat tape installation. However, cost is minimal when you think about the cost to your property if you do nothing about the ever-increasing amount of snow and ice that can build up each winter. Continuing a plan of climbing on top of your roof to sweep off or chip off ice or icicles is not recommended. Not only is it dangerous, you could actually do more harm than good chipping away and damaging shingles. It also isn’t an ideal way to deal with roof problems as you get older either. When you want a safe and affordable way to handle that ice and snow and prevent the damage it can do, heat tape is the sensible answer.
