Short-Term Solutions

Maintenance

First and foremost, it is not recommended that you get on your roof to solve an ice damming or icicle problem. It could be dangerous. Also, do not stand on the ground and chip away at the ice. This can cause damage to roofing materials and you might be subject to injury from falling ice, debris, or tools.

Some homeowners have installed roof mounted heating cables to melt ice dams. Heating cables should always be installed by a reputable electrical contractor and should not be installed by the homeowner or gutter contractor unless the gutter contractor is qualified.
