When you live somewhere that has as much snowfall each year as we do in the Lake Tahoe area, snow accumulation on your roof is a major concern. As the snow starts to melt and temperatures plummet again, ice dams can form at the edge of your room. Nickerson Roofing knows that is one of the top reasons people experience leak problems and roof damage in our local area. We offer a variety of ice dam solutions to keep your roof safe from the dangers of ice damming.

Heat Tracing Design & Heat Trace Cable Installation

When you experience an ice damming problem in just a few areas, and not on the entire roof, heat tracing is a viable option for you. Nickerson Roofing uses commercial grade products that will activate and maintain the electrical usage needed prevent ice dams from forming. We will apply heat tracing to the problem areas on your roof to keep snow melted which will in turn, keep ice from forming as well. This allows us to protect your roof from sustaining any damage that puts you at risk of a leaking roof.

Metal Roof Skirting

For years, Nickerson Roofing has been installing metal skirting to keep ice dams from forming on roofs. It is key that the installation is done correctly or else you could still have ice dam problems. The slick metal doesn’t allow snow to remain on its surface. This will keep snow accumulation off the edge of the roof, and also help prevent ice damming as well. If you have an older roof, we recommend an inspection to ensure the rest of the roof isn’t in need of further repair before installing the metal skirting around the edge of the roof.
